This is another reason why we should never hesitate to let those that have meant so much in our lives know how valuable they have been to us. I have a friend I've known for about 15 years who also inspired and helped me to improve my life. We have worked at 2 jobs together where he continually pushed me to seek new skills and realize a fuller potential for myself. (By the way, he LOVES Dreamweaver! I always wondered if it was named after the Gary Wright song from the 70s.) Anyway, while my friend is still around, I have not hesitated to let him know as we've both moved on to new opportunities how much his guidance has helped my life.

I worked with Ben at a small company called iBand. I was not there very long because I wanted to get into video games, but before I left I had designed the first draft UI of a new program they were making. Less than a year later the 10-person company was purchased by Macromedia for $35 million, and the program evolved into Dreamweaver, which has been their #1 moneymaker (even over Flash) up until they merged with Adobe. None of my options were vested.

Several other software titles have been derived from Dreamweaver, including Macromedia Contribute, which came out shortly after Ben's passing. If you read the scrolling text of the About dialog in Contribute 1.0, this will eventually come up:



He is remembered fondly by many.

That's a great story Hanford. I'm really glad I have that insight. Thanks for sharing it and thanks for unfolding more history. BTW, you're doing just fine.
