led a highly energized group of developers in building the Tribune site from scratch, working closely with the creators of its custom content management system and the design firm that conceived our clean, classic look. His many years as a technology visionary ensured he was up to the task. Born in Mexico and educated at the University of Texas, where he studied electrical, computer, and biomedical engineering, Maycotte has co-founded several cutting-edge companies, including FineTooth (now Mumboe), FlightLock, Universal Computing and RateGenius. He was also a founding partner in the boutique venture capital firm Agile Ventures. His greatest strengths — identifying trends for products and services, setting and executing the architecture and roadmap for their development, defining and maintaining an intellectual property strategy, and representing and positioning the organization in social media — made him an indispensable asset to the Trib's launch team.
