Working Digitally

There many people who earn their cherished dollar by working at home-Working on websites, producing software/programs and so forth. There are many ways to accumulate income using the web. I am too am of the community who works on the web. I am a content editor. Recently, I was given the assignment for a final project by my Digital Media Professor to Research and interview someone who has the same background of working on the web. I am going to do the project on my own employer Dwight Ford who has a huge list of amazing credentials with abundant experience as an engineer and developer.

IDEAS>>>>Dwight has a wide range of credentials that I plan on narrowing down to three of his most amazing accomplishments/jobs working digitally along with his current projects, what he does and how he does it, major goals and where he sees himself another ten years from now working web based.
