Larry Drolet is one of the founders of Answer Studios, a design and application development house blending photography and Macromedia Flash application design. He is a developer and dreamer, one of those people when “well caffeinated” has about an idea a minute. While in graduate school, he was forced to write a paper on Internet law and it developed into a hobby, then a freelancing gig, a real dot-com job, a position with a dot-com start-up, and now his own firm. Sounds all too familiar! Currently, he is working on the fourth version of his site ToUnite.com, but he's looking forward to the day he can move on to his next career: either a lawyer or a professional triathlete. Larry can be seen every month at the San Diego Server-Side User Group—coding guaranteed to put you to sleep.
