As currently envisioned by marketing and Wall Street types, the web is doomed to failure. Learn why, and what will replace it.

He graduated from CU in 1976 with a BS in applied mathematics and computer science. He worked for Hewlett-Packard for several years as an engineer before leaving to join ALF Products, a Denver software firm. He founded Quark in 1981 with a $2000 loan from his parents. Today Quark employs over 600 people and has operation in seven countries.
