In 1999, iCAST was a $100 million multimedia venture funded by Internet giant CMGi. It was an amazing time in history because the web was still very young and technologies such as flash animation and streaming video were just beginning to develop. With iCAST, John was a strategic player in both flash and video, as well as serving as a Senior Art Director. CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE...


Award-wining Online Video & Flash Website Site produced by John's team
when was converting to
the $100 million venture.

The site was one of the first in history to feature streaming video within a flash-based website. It was designed to promote the VHS and DVD Boxed set called "THE MIKE DOUGLAS SHOW WITH JOHN LENNON & YOKO ONO." Lennon and Ono took over the Mike Douglas Show for one week in 1972. Rhino records had been selling the VHS/DVD set since 1998. It is now out of print, but you can see parts of it on YouTube below and buy it on Ebay.


Between 1992-1994, the Microsoft Home Division commisioned many CD-ROM products. John worked on two of them by providing digital video, animation, and graphics for a Scientific American project, "The Planets," and digital video and animation playback for "The Ultimate Frank Lloyd Wright."

In the early 1990's, John delivered many multimedia projects and presentations for Fortune 500 companies such as Bear Stearns, Goldman Sachs, Lehman Brothers, American Express, and Chase Manhattan. However, the more exciting projects were always coming from the high tech and media sector firms such as Sony, Time Warner, and Canon. CLICK HERE TO SEE SOME OF JOHN'S INTERACTIVE DESIGNS...

In 1987, John's first company, Applied Imagination, got its start when HyperCard was announced by Apple Computer. John and his brilliant partner, Tom Tafuto, used HyperCard to create the world's first interactive guide to New York City... and it fit on a single floppy disc! It was a complete guide with restaurants, hotels, entertainment, and subway information down to the street level in every neighborhood of the Big Apple. It was such a compelling example of what HyperCard could do that Apple hired Applied Imagination to give presentations to educators all over the tri-state area. Telephone giant, NYNEX, installed it as an interactive kiosk in the newly opened Jacob Javits Center. John loved HyperCard! It was WAY ahead of its time.

Most people don't know that HyperCard was the precursor to the Internet with hyperlinking and simple programming. It did not require a degree in computer science and it directly inspired HTTP and Javascript. The HyperCard pointing-finger cursor used for navigation was also used for the web's first browsers. The inventor of Wikis (wikipedia, etc), Ward Cunningham, said the wiki concept can be traced back to his first Hypercard stack in the late '80's. Eternal thanks go to HyperCard creator, Bill Atkinson, who was also the programming genius behind MacPaint and Quickdraw (that's Bill sitting to the right of a very young Steve Jobs with the first Macintosh computer in 1984).

Below is the cover of the innovative, oversized HyperCard brochure designed by the legendary Creative Director of Apple, Clement Mok. It's simple message was: "The human mind works by association. So why don't computers?" Sheer genius.
