JACKSONVILLE -- September 10, 2002 -- Peter Blakeney, one of the Internet's original "shining stars," is coming to JSU. Peter's vision helped shape the look and feel of the World Wide Web. He will be speaking at 1 p.m. on Thursday, September 19, in Merrill Building Auditorium on the first floor of Merrill Hall.

Peter's talk should be of interest to all students or faculty in the College of Commerce and Business Administration. But students in the Arts (and particularly Design) would find his talk interesting as well. Peter is formerly Global Design Services Executive for IBM.
