Who's Don?    

  Who is this guy anyway? Not much is known but a few facts do emerge:

- His first visit to Paris was when he was 11
- He earned a BFA in photography from SFAI
- In 1995 he taught a seminar about the Web in its birthplace, Switzerland
- He once bought a new 286 for $1200
 
$1200 for a 286, is he mad?

  He speaks 3 languages:
1. English
2. HTML
3. Crazed sign language with sound effects
 
  Someone who's known him for 29 years once said:
  "He's artistic, strung out on coffee, open to new experiences, a world traveler and an intellectual."
- Jeff

   In 1995 he attempted to seduce a Parisian by making a surpise visit and sending an entire chicken in a can with a friend from the US to help hide his visit. He thinks outside the box or boite, as the case may be.

  Interested in travel & food, his recipe for Gorgonzola cheese sauce was choosen to be included in the cookbook

  Other's have said:
 "Sort of like a Baywatch lifeguard, only different, Don keeps a tireless eye on the digital surf. One time I got beat up by a rogue cop and told some people in a discussion list. Don noticed the tear in the fabric of the Web, dove in, prescribed PGP, and I've had none of that nasty business since. "
- Dan McComb, former victim

 " Nelly and Don told me something about the rest of their schedule; but it sounded like 'The 15 Countries In 60 Days Marathon Visit' and details of it have escaped me...
  Don was packing a very huge camera with a bazooka-like lens. "

 " He's one of the best conversationalists on Earth and he makes killer espresso. "
