sound designer. In 1995 he produced the interactive soundtrack for EMI Records
flagship CD-ROM, Queensrÿche's Promised Land. After receiving impressive
reviews from Billboard Magazine for the soundtrack, Josh went on to explore interactive

Dylan Thede's multimedia experience began in
the cultural center of Berkeley and the San Francisco Bay Area in 1985. At a young
age, he was designing sound systems and multimedia presentations for groups at
the University of California at Berkeley, and San Francisco State University.
While at the University of California at Santa Cruz, Dylan became a pioneer in
the emerging fields of Digital Audio, Digital Video, and Multimedia Interactivity
and later graduated with honors and two degrees in Multimedia and in Psychology.
He was one of the first pioneering designers on the Internet when the World
Wide Web burst onto the scene in 1994. In 1995, Dylan founded AudioVisualize,
a Multimedia consulting company that creates visions and designs for companies
that wish to implement Multimedia into their web sites and corporate networks.
As well, Dylan serves as a VP with Raspberry Media and along with co-author Josh
Beggs, continues to create exciting and dynamic works of interactive rich media
for the web today. Besides writing and creating multimedia projects, he is a composer
and musician and is constantly in search of the highest inspiration life can offer,
usually to be found somewhere by the sea, in the setting of the sun. Dylan can
