William began his career as an embedded chip designer at Nippon Motorola, Ltd. with Sony, Canon, and Matsushita as clients. He transitioned to Emerging Technologies for Motorola, Inc. in Austin, Texas, tasked with finding "10-year-out, next-billion-dollar" opportunities for the company. In 1993, while at Motorola, William presented a future: computers would be mobile and wirelessly connected; content would be widely shared; media publishers would go mad in frustration and panic. Motorola, holding a leadership in computer technology, mobile technology, and networking, would be perfectly placed to take advantage of setting up secure toll roads in advance of this tidal wave of change. Motorola declined to pursue this proposal, and he left to found a company that eventually became GlobeSet, a provider of secure Internet transaction technology.
