Menlo Park, California
On October 15, 2010, the Marconi Society conferred its coveted prize – the equivalent of a Nobel in the field of information technology – to Charles Geschke and John Warnock, co-founders of Adobe Systems, Inc. Geschke and Warnock join a fellowship of 40 additional Internet pioneers, telecommunications giants and visionaries whose theoretical work laid the foundation for breakthrough research that has advanced the social, economic and cultural improvement of all humanity.
Geschke and Warnock were recognized for being visionary business leaders and technological innovators who together helped fundamentally transform the world of print communications from a manual, mechanical process to a digital work flow. The two were selected for the Marconi Prize for their research on printing and imaging technology and their development of Adobe® PostScript®, a revolutionary software technology that is now the worldwide printing and imaging standard used by print service providers, publishers, corporations and government agencies around the globe.
The 2011 Marconi Prize Winner will be announced in Spring, 2011
