Talking Jobs And Heading To Washington

Macromedia founder and BYTE videoblogger Marc Canter's Digital City project is all about that four-letter word President Obama addresses Thursday: Jobs.

What do they get in Cleveland that we don't get here in Silicon Valley? You'll see in my video, below, the fourth in a series about jobs creation. (Note: the Obama talk on jobs I refer to as next week in the video takes place Thursday, Sept. 8, 2011, at 8 p.m. before a joint session of Congress.) Check it out.

Based in Cleveland, Marc Canter co-founded Macromedia and a number of social media startups. Reach him at marc@digitalmechanics.com.
