Esther Dyson is chairman of EDventure Holdings, a US-based company focused on information technology, health care, open government, digital technology, biotechnology, and outer space.[1]

For several years in the '90s she was chairman of the Electronic Frontier Foundation. From 1998 to 2000, she was founding chairman of ICANN (the organization responsible for overseeing the Domain Name System).[2]

She is also on the Advisory board of the elite networking group Renaissance Weekend and the board of the Markle Foundation.
