Awesome Washingtonian of the Day Aug 31, 2010

Name: MarK Walsh
Live in: Maryland
Originally from: Charm City, or, as you non-natives call it, Baltimore

Profession: co-founder and ceo of GeniusRocket and local angel-investor

What I love about DC area the most: Change.  To the rest of the world it seems like a stodgy, entrenched city.  But, I think it has a constant flow of amazing people from all over the world coming here, and people from here go out all over the world.  It is one of the most interesting combinations of local/global I have ever seen.   Oh… and GO CAPS!

About me: I got into the internet business in 1986, before most people even knew it existed.  It has never failed to entertain, enthrall, and sometimes shock me.  I love my job and my career.  It brought me to DC to work at GE then AOL, so I owe it a wonderful period of my life.  I am lucky person… and whether that makes me awesome or not is up to someone else…  I went to Union College and Harvard Business School, and love to watch, play and coach lacrosse. Here are more details about me on Wikipedia…

    Mark needs to go into politics – he just does not know it yet. Come on Mark! Instead of fuming about the state of the Union, you need to roll up those sleeves and plunge in. We need you.
