About Gerry

Gerry helps organizations reduce data waste by designing simpler, lighter, more environmentally friendly websites and apps. He developed Top Tasks, a research method that identifies what really matters and gets rid of what doesn't. Top Tasks can result in an 80–90% reduction in content, clearer menus and links, and better search results. Over a 20-year period, Top Tasks has been implemented hundreds of times.

Gerry has written eight books. His latest is World Wide Waste: How digital is killing the planet and what to do about it. The Irish Times has described him as one of five visionaries who have had a major impact on the development of the Web.
