We are honored to have guests Annie and David Fox. In 1977, they opened Marin Computer Center, the world's first public access microcomputer facility. From there Annie became an award-winning writer/designer of children's CD ROMs. (Putt-Putt, Madeline and Mr. Potato Head Saves Veggie Valley are just a few of the titles on which she worked.).

David was a game designer/programmer at LucasArts in the early years, now an iOS children's app developer! 

They launched Electric Eggplant to continue working on multimedia projects. Their first app, Be Confident in Who You Are: A Middle School Confidential Graphic Novel, appeared in the app store this year. You can also find their first iBook, Are you My Friend: for 4-8 year olds.

Join us as we chat with Annie and David about their projects and their thoughts on using technology to empower the kids of today, confidently and safely!
