The 16th President of RISD

John Maeda was welcomed into the Art Directors Hall of Fame in 2008, at the time I was just joining the ADC board. It was inspiring to be part of an organization that was able to recognize the career of a creative person who is comfortable at the intersection of Design, Technology and Business.  Now just 6 years later it is amazing to see what John has accomplished at RISD, bringing technology to the design/education space and what he will do in at EBAY, in the technology/business space.
