Arts In Progress hosts Harry Marks for his discussion, "Confessions of a type Nazi, or How a lifetime obsession with typography took me on a journey I could never have imagined." Marks has been in entertainment since the 1960's, and now as a retiree he shares his story of the innovation he help usher in to the world of graphics in television broadcasting. He also helped co-found the TED conference, organizing the first in 1984 where Sony demonstrated its CD player and the Apple Macintosh computer was also featured. Marks has won numerous awards for his computer graphics work in television, including an Emmy. For a half-hour before and after Marks' presentation, refreshments will be provided for informal community building sessions. [GS]
