Some community comments about Marc include...

He has been the person re-activating the full community world-wide, traveling many places around the globe to organize TikiFests, investing money to improve the overall performance and look and feel of the application through hiring countless coders.

Unflinching dedication.

Marc is a driving force within the TikiWiki community and continually works to move the project ahead. He can routinely be seen on the forums, in the IRC channel, or face-to-face at a TikiFest.
