Macromedia founder Marc Canter says you've got to automate global and scale local to succed -- and talk to people outside of the California milieu. That's why he's in Cleveland.
Software is about changing the world -- and it's great if you can make some money along the way. But that's not what it's all about.

That's why I moved from Silicon Valley back to Cleveland. That -- and the pierogies and corned beef. And the half-pound brownies!
Note: I shot and uploaded this on July 4th. Just so you know. I like to keep these things timely. Check out the video.
