the 3 panelists, Steve Yamaguma, Mike Driggers and Jim Poppy fielded
questions ranging from deep technical issues on designing a web
pages to what motivated them from an early age to pursue a career
in graphic design.

lasted all night. With very diverse backgrounds and career paths,
the panelists stressed that opportunities will continue to evolve

being generated by the masses who have the power of technology at
the hands of their desktop.
