What do people think of Jehochman as an arb?
I don't know him that well but he comes from some sort of legal background, and contributes under his real name.
He doesn't sound very legally-oriented to me at all.
A graduate of Yale University with two degrees in Computer Science, Hochman's credentials include:
Qualified Google Advertising Professional
Yahoo Search Marketing Ambassador
Microsoft adExcellence Member
Search Engine Marketing Professionals Organization (SEMPO) member firm
Search Engine Marketing New England (SEMNE) member firm
Search Engine Strategies conference speaker
Search Marketing Expo conference speaker
High Rankings SEO Forum moderator
Organization of Independent Software Vendors member
In 1990 Hochman set up a consulting practice in New York City, focusing on international business development. For more than a decade he represented Russian clients in both import and export transactions with the United States, Europe and Asia. He also built web sites for clients . In 2004 he launched Hochman Consultants, a firm that specializes in Internet marketing, search engine optimization, and pay-per-click advertising.
One time, though, when he saw that I posted something here about something that Orbitz was trying to do on Wikipedia, he jumped to conclusions and announced on Wikipedia that I was "deeply involved" with my supposed "client", Orbitz. To his credit, I was able to rein in his hyperactive imagination with just one phone call.
Overall, I think he's an okay guy, but I do wonder about how his business stays successful, what with all his Wikipediaing all the time.
