Marc's had at least one world-changing idea: he created Macromind Director, and, along with that, Macromedia and the concept of authoring. That's precisely one more world-changing idea than me, and I have huge respect for Marc's accomplishments. He's doing it again, taking decades of experience, a crack team, and a strong idea, to bring authoring to a whole new set of users and applications. Good stuff.
