A lot of people are surprised when they learn John was an English major, given his mad development skills. But it’s actually his interest in the humanities that drove him to the Web.
John learned HTML in college in 1993 and quickly realized that the Web would be a communications revolution, along the same lines as the Gutenberg Press. So he set aside his plans for advanced English studies to participate.
Since then, he’s worked for several media companies, government agencies, and associations — including AARP, the Discovery Channel, and the Library of Congress. Then he moved to NewCity, where he practices front-end web development with a special interest in data visualization.
