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.
