Client list

While intended as a final list, this is a list of who I think have been some of my more important consulting gigs.

Securities.com, Boston

Counsel Connect, Cambridge, MA

Fun project via BBN Planet (now something else I guess). We rewrote a large online service for lawyers to be web based and took it live in 3 months. Great team, great people. Perl, C, Oracle, Solaris and Netscape Publishing/Community System (which we eventually more or less were forced to rewrite).

Side note. My longest billing date ever was when we went live. I billed for 26 or 27 hours of straight work. I asked them if I needed to split it up over the actual days worked, but they thought it was as hilarious as me.

AltaVista , Littleton, MA

I was the corporate webmaster throughout 1996 and a bit into 97. This does not mean I wrote the search engine, but I was basically in charge of all other aspects of the web for Digitals failed attempt of spinning off a super internet startup.

Lessons learnt:

  • The dos and donts of corporate warfare
  • Digital Unix rocks. Database driven perl scripts ran pretty much as fast as fastcgi
  • Dont type try to kill a process on a production machine while nodding off at 4am in the morning
  • Dynamic apps do not have to be slow
  • Palo Alto has better restaurants than Littleton, MA
  • TCL should be used for minor scripting and not major production apps (Ex altavistites know what I mean)
  • Don’t let your fear of Microsoft affect all aspects of product strategy
