An article on Techcrunch recently, describes “9 Ways to Build Your own Social Network“. One of the open source products described in the article is Ning, a project of Marc Andreessen (of the original Netscape fame). Later I found an article in my aggregator that led me to an interesting story about Ning, and Marc Andreessen’s response to the funding article, and some recent successes they had enjoyed. Another well known innovator, Marc Canter, the founder of a little company named Macromedia, also read of Ning’s new funding and decided write a letter to Mr. Andreessen to suggest what he could do with all that money! You may not remember these famous personages that helped shape our interactive world, but read on to learn about what they are doing with their time these days, and some interesting news along the way. I think you’ll find it interesting!
