Email Integration

To: 
1999
From: 
1996

ePostings was a strtup specializing in rule-based email filtering.

I build the rule-based engine in pl/sql, an SMTP server in Java that lived inside ORacle (Hard to describe but very effective).

Designed email farm, sorting farm, and storag architecture, along with the usual ERD's and other artifacts of development process.

Problem Definition: 

How to effectively manage email for the busy professional.

Approach: 
A system which touches many functions requires many protocols: Java, HTML, PL/SQL, PERL, and server architectures were each critical parts of the whole.

Business Journals

To: 
2006
From: 
2003

When I arrived on the scene at the Westchester and Fairfield Business Journals, 4-day-a-week employee went live with the web version of these papers the Thursday after Monday morning publication.

Using XML from Quark (later InDesign), a smaller staff was able to generate the full web version of the paper four days before the paper version hit the mailboxes, at a tiny fraction of the cost of a full time employee.

Build out full eCommerce for online paper purchases, integrated with two different vendors.

Problem Definition: 

One of those integration problems at which clemandco excels: how to take items and protocols on hand and turn them in a real, working system that saves time and money?

Approach: 
Many phases, from initial development of the online papers and scripts, to full ecommerce, metatagging, dynamic publication through much-hacked Drupal instance.

Dubbed MEMBER+, the Neta4 solution offers a unique strategy for integrating push, privacy, and personalization technologies into a single unified software package which allows customers to more effectively trade personal profile information for merchant-supplied benefits and discounts. Using MEMBER+, Web-based merchants will be able to deliver product and service related promotions direct to customers on a one-to-one rather than an anonymous aggregated basis, helping build brand loyalty and increasing customer satisfaction.

Facilities Manager

To: 
2006
From: 
1995

One of my favorite projects.

Chemical Bank asked Design Systems to integrate existing DBASE databases of assets with their AutoCad drawings into an intranet.

Users would be able to browse drawings, identify cataloged assets and maintenance items on the web instead of requireing AutoCad. (Remember this was 1994 -- .DWG viewers were few and far between.

The resulting mix of AutoLISP, HTML, dynamic image mapping, and scheduled cron jobs was known as the Chamical Bank Facilities Navigator.

Problem Definition: 

Integrate dissimilar packages into a web presence.

Approach: 
Low-tech, low-price solution using materials, protocals, data, and techniques at hand.
Result: 
I got a call from the client 10 years after sign off. The application had been up -- with minor modifications -- continuously for 10 years without additional maintenance!

10,000 Dreams

To: 
present
From: 
2001

For some reason I recalled an Edwardian text, -- still sold on the street of new York by the way as a cutting-edge psychological work, and in Urban Outfitters, among the usual bookstores. A quick search on the web proved that 10,000 Dreams was available as an etext from Gutenberg.org.

I was off and running.

Problem Definition: 

Build a feature for gimmick.com.

Approach: 
The etext was munge into bt sized bits with stopwords and keywords remove. Automated linjking in PERL
