Who is Korova Multimedia?
While working in Mobile, Alabama, I established
Korova Multimediaas an umbrella business for publication of music reviews, columns,... production and marketing of a public radio program,...computer systems consultation and administration,... and online content development. Korova Multimediacontinues to be a vehicle for developing and promoting innovative content and services for a variety of clients and speaking engagements.
In 1996, I utilized its resources to support and encourage a number of educational initiatives in Marin County. Particularly, during the 1996 Marin County Fair, I led a group of young people associated with The Novato Onramp and Novato schools in producing an online newspaper, Oinker Online. What made this project unique was that the staff for the production consisted almost entirely of local school children. The paper's base of operation was "on location" in the Fair's
Multimedia Funhouse.Subsequent to the Fair, I've continued my "mentorship" of young people in association with The Novato Onramp.
In 1997, again a group of technicians and consultants mentored local kids in the production of the 1997 Marin County Fair site. This year, the Web site featured a live Palace chat area, pictures freshly downloaded from the NASA Pathfinder lander on Mars, and news and interviews from the Fair.
As I transition my own career into the private sector, Korova Multimedia will continue to be a wide-ranging consulting and education platform for a variety of projects. This web site represents a portion of the endeavors, and (I hope) an introduction into the varied interests that I explore, and further promote, as "Korova Multimedia." Thank you for visiting; I hope you enjoy what you read here.D.B. Spalding
