Marc N. Weiss, Executive Producer, spent a lot of time in old media -- a lot of time -- before new media came along to make life interesting again. As a kid, he was addicted to TV and he started making experimental films in college. Beginning in 1969 -- and well into the 90's -- Marc was pretty much consumed with the production, distribution, programming and promotion of independent documentaries. He was also a freelance writer, with articles in Rolling Stone, Variety and Mother Jones. He created P.O.V., the award-winning public TV series, in 1987 and was its executive producer through 1995, when he founded P.O.V. Interactive. From there it was a hop, click and a jump to Web Lab. Marc loves mouseovers.

Jed Miller, Director, Collaboration & Community, grew up in Manhattan, where he learned that everyone has an opinion. Jed is working on the current projects and the ongoing development for the newest version of Small Group Dialogue. He has built communities on AOL, NYTimes.com, abuzz.com and audible.com. Six years online have shaped Jed's belief that the Internet is foremost an "identity engine": It enables us to be who we already are and to build safe outposts in the speculative territories of who we may be. It is the medium and we are the message. More ramblings are available at jedmiller.com

Suzanne Seggerman, Director of Special Projects, is back at Web Lab as a part-time consultant after a year-and-a-half hiatus. For a new Mom and a recent resident of Kosovo, Web Lab is the welcome calm after the storm! Her background in interactive media includes community-oriented projects and the design of non-traditional games. Some of this work earned her awards from New Voices New Visions and Communications Arts. Her independent film experience includes credits as Production Manager for Ken Burns' PBS series "The West" and CO-producer of "Race For Life," a humanitarian aid and documentary film about Eastern Europe. As the manager of the Crossover selection process and Studio A's "Clipboard Lady", she's something of a control freak. She is also a nationally-ranked Scrabble player and the Queen of Asteroids.


Barry Joseph, Dialogues Consultant, has, after 2.5 years as Supervising Producer, transitioned to a consulting role (he left a note about the change). Before he graduated to a .org, Barry served .com time @radical.media, where he produced and Web-designed sites for Black & Decker, Car & Driver, Premiere Magazine, The Today Show, NBC, MSN, MSNBC, AT&T, Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation, Sotheby's, @radical.media, Movado & Kevin Bacon (a list he once found impressive, but now slightly more than silly compared to his Web Lab projects). Barry teaches Web Design to both students and educators in New York City's alternative high schools. He has also been recognized by New York magazine for his courses held at the Chautauqua Institution, Parsons, and the School of Visual Arts. Barry believes Oprah gives good hugs... and he speaks from experience.
