NEW: Twitter Co-Creator Dom Sagolla Delivers Becker’s Commencement Address

Monday, May 14, 2012

 

Twitter co-creator Dom Sagolla just after delivering Becker's commencement address.

Twitter co-creator Dom Sagolla delivered Becker College’s commencement address today at the Hanover Theatre.

Sagolla was also given an honorary doctoral degree from Becker, and was excited to speak at a school that had a great reputation for video game design.

“I didn’t mention this on-stage, but I’m a big fan of E-sports,” Sagolla said. “I almost made the entire speech a dissertation on video games, because I think they’re such a huge part of the future of computer science.”

While mostly known for his work with Twitter, Sagolla has also taken the lead for multiple other significant technological projects. He helped build Macromedia Studio, Odeo Studio and Adobe Creative Suite.

He now produces Apps for the iPhone with his company in San Francisco. He created the official Obama ’08 iPhone App, as well as two of iTunes’ most downloaded Apps, Big Words and Math Cards.

In his address to Becker’s graduating class, Sagolla had some unconventional wisdom.

“Embrace constraints,” Sagolla said. “Many people feel that social or political constraints are an excuse to fail, but I find them to be freeing. You know, you look at Twitter with 140 characters to get your message across as a great example. Some of the best small companies thrive because their constraints inspire creativity.”
