Marc Canter: Ain't No Jobs Out Here

In installment three of his videoblog, the Macromedia founder takes on tech training for the midwestern masses.

My latest rant ties together many themes I'm currently working on. The fact I've tied them all together is one of the themes. There's great value in finding synergy between seemingly disparate topics. Collectively, such out-of-the-box thinking adds up to what I think is a better approach to creating tech jobs, and I'll explain in my short videoblog below.

That's what my Digital City project is all about.The fact that I can walk around Cleveland--while holding my iPhone at arm's length and recording my rants on jobs and racism--is what makes this job so fun.

In the video, definitely check out my t-shirt. Bet you can't tell what it says or exactly what type of tomatoes I'm growing. Don't laugh. In Cleveland, these things matter.

Disclaimer: Like all BYTE columns, this videoblog does not necessarily reflect the views of BYTE. These are the views of the author, Marc Canter.

Based in Cleveland, Marc Canter co-founded Macromedia in the 1980s and countless startups since. These days he's growing tomatoes and thinking deeply about how to get more tech jobs for people from various ethnicities.
