Advisory Board

  • Mark Compton, who now runs a publishing and marketing communications consulting group called Hired Gun Communications, has been working in the technology space for over 25 years for the likes of Cisco, Sun, HP, Adobe, 3Com and many of the other household names, along with a host of far less familiar startups almost beyond counting.

    Before going out on his own, he headed up marketing programs at Silicon Graphics, where he was the driving force behind the branding program for the company's Indigo family of desktop workstations. Over a four-year period in the mid-1980s, he served as editor-in-chief of Unix Review, at the time considered the leading publication for Unix software engineers.
