We're fortunate enough to have Marc Canter
present for us this month, and it's sure to be an entertaining and inspirational evening.
Marc has many notable achievements, but his most web-relevant is that he created the company that became Macromedia (who was later acquired by Adobe). They created the multimedia program Director, which was the most widely used tool to create web content, games/e-learning pieces, and kiosk work. Marc is considered one of the founders of multimedia, and has been a speaker, developer and evangelist in the industry for over a decade.
He now lives in Cleveland, where his mission is job creation
. Through his company Digital City Mechanics
, Canter aims to help create 5,000 local jobs in five years. By partnering with numerous civic institutions, and utilizing an open software platform that encourages network building, Marc says he will turn Cleveland into "a digital city creating digital jobs for its digital citizens."
