Cluelessness

Project ID: 142869
Title: Website Rebuild
Category: Website Design / Website Marketing
Description:
We are in the need of a rebuild of our website. We want something a little more professional and not so 'home-made.' We want to implement a little Flash to it but not anything too over the top. Also, we would like to have a client login page from our site to be able to login from another application. Our main concern is obviously budget since we are a small company every penny counts.

If we could keep the budget in the range of $1000-2000 I think I could talk my boss into allowing it.Thanks for your time.

iPods can be tools of espionage

Australian IT - iPods can be tools of espionage (Graeme Kemlo, APRIL 26, 2005)

Red Hacker Alliance

Xinhua - English: " BEIJING, April 26 -- The 'Red Hacker Alliance,' the largest and earliest hacking legion in China, was regrouped recently after a short break.
The alliance, attracting 20,000 hackers, once ranked the fifth in the world in terms of the number of its members.
Its Web site, set up at the end of 2000, had nearly 80,000 registered members at its peak.
The task of the alliance was to prevent hacking attacks from foreign countries.
But the Web network was disintegrated by the end of 2004 for no specific reason.
The Web site founder, nicknamed Lion, said in an e-mail that the Web site existed in name only and he closed the Web site after Dec. 21, 2004.
A sophomore majored in computer sciences at University of Electronic Science and Technology of China in Chengdu, who is also a group member, is now responsible for personnel management of the group and the Web site maintenance.
The student, surnamed Yang, said: 'I can design a computer virus in a few minutes, which can disfunction the use of mouse and computer, but I will not do this because the mission of a 'Red Hacker' member is to protect the Web sites from being attacked.'
The Web site also has a supervision committee to supervise its members' behaviors and cancel memberships of those who violate its rule by attacking other Web sites. "

Texas high-tech exports soar

Study: High-tech exports up, job losses down in Texas

Study: High-tech exports up, job losses down in Texas - 2005-04-26: "Study: High-tech exports up, job losses down in Texas"

Tech thrives in Texas

DallasNews.com | News for Dallas, Texas | Business

By CRAYTON HARRISON / The Dallas Morning News


Texas has remained a technology powerhouse in the last few years despite the industry's economic malaise, a trade group says in a report to be released today.

Notably, the state has kept a large tech workforce and attracted private investment without heavy government spending.

The aftershocks of the technology industry's 2001 collapse were still being felt in 2003, when Texas lost 32,900 high-tech jobs, according to AeA, formerly called the American Electronics Association.

That dip left the state with about 446,000 technology workers, second only to California's 915,500.

AeA compiled the Cyberstates report from government data and information from the venture capital industry.

Most of the data came from 2003, though some 2004 statistics were included.

Nationally, high-tech employment dipped by 25,300 jobs in 2004, compared with 333,000 jobs lost in 2003.

While layoffs in North Texas' telecommunications sector have left many highly trained workers still looking for jobs, other parts of the technology industry, such as software and semiconductors, have begun to recover.

"There are opportunities out there for well-trained, skilled technology professionals," said John Martin, president of Dallas-based staffing and consulting firm Impact Innovations Group.

"The glut of talent is more on the telecom side, not on the applications development side."

Texas ranked second in high-tech payroll and in total number of tech companies in 2003, the report said. Last year, Texas had nearly $35 billion in tech-related exports, it said.

But the state ranked 27th in state funding of research and development, spending $654 per capita compared with California's $1,600, AeA said.

The federal government and private investment carry much of the research load in Texas, the report said.

It ranked Texas fourth in total research spending, including federal government, academic and industry spending, using data from a 2004 National Science Board report.

Texas was third in venture capital investment, AeA said, citing data from the National Venture Capital Association.

Still, the state would benefit from taxpayer-funded investment in research, said Clare Emerson, executive director of AeA's Texas chapter. She noted that Maryland's venture capital funding increased after it ramped up public investments in research.

"If we invest a little more, the return might be huge," she said.

Gov. Rick Perry has asked the Legislature to create a $300 million fund to invest in the commercialization of university research. Several technology companies have endorsed that idea.

"If I had to pick one factor as the best leading indicator for economic success, it's investment in basic research," said Phil Ritter, senior vice president at Texas Instruments Inc.

Government funding can help as long as it focuses on education and pure scientific research, said Ronald Nash, a partner at venture capital firm Interwest Partners.

"If you get governments trying to place bets on new technologies, they'll do it about as efficiently as Russia used to do," he said.

New Computer Virus Kills Music Files

With the new computer virus 'Nopir-B' worm spreading through Europe, computer users are advised to take extra caution. Korea's top anti-virus developer AhnLab says the worm, which seems to have originated in France, deletes MP3 music files on infected computers and spreads through peer-to-peer file-sharing networks.
The worm is said to destroy the user's operating system, making it impossible to reboot computers. Experts say the worm has not made its way to Korea yet but advised PC users to upgrade their anti-virus software.

Quotes of reflection.

"'The Babel fish,' said the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy quietly, 'is small, yellow and leechlike, and probably the oddest thing in the Universe. It feeds on brainwave energy received not from its own carrier but from those around it. (......) The practical upshot of all this is that if you stick a Babel fish in your ear you can instantly understand anything said to you in any form of language.

'Now it is such a bizarrely improbable coincidence that anything so mind-bogglingly useful could have evolved purely by chance that some thinkers have chosen to see it as a final and clinching proof for the nonexistance of God.

'The argument goes something like this: 'I refuse to prove that I exist,' says God, 'for proof denies faith, and without faith I am nothing.'

' 'But,' says Man, 'the Babel fish is a dead giveaway, isn't it? It would not have evolved by chance. It proves you exist, and so therefore, by your own arguments, you don't. QED.'

' 'Oh dear,' said God, 'I haven't thought of that,' and promptly vanishes in a puff of logic.'


---- Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (1979)"

Plunkett Energized as Fueled Director of Internet Marketing; Internet Marketing Company Hires Web Guru to Lead Creative Division




DALLAS, April 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Fueled Communications, an innovative new Dallas-based Internet marketing agency, today announced Steve Plunkett as director of Internet marketing. Boasting more than a decade of experience with online marketing and search engine optimization, Plunkett continually compares his work to child's play.



"When I was a kid, I ruled at video games. My initials were in the top scoring positions of gaming units all over my neighborhood," Plunkett said. "Successful Internet marketing is a whole lot like getting high scores on a video game except that my arsenal no longer includes laser beams and bonus lives. Now I use organic search engine optimization to get customers on the front page of results. This is a serious game, and the real goal is to score big for Fueled clients."



Fueled Communications also provides a wide array of results-oriented services including website development, strategy and planning as well as pay- per-click advertising. Companies realize the need to develop and maintain an informative, easily navigable web presence. But ongoing search engine optimization (SEO) can produce larger sales numbers for Fueled Communications clients long after the site is launched.



Search engine optimization requires almost daily attention to ensure desired results. Prioritization standards, hierarchy strategies and algorithms can shift without notice at any given moment on any or all Internet search engines. Managing this ever-changing dynamic requires a vast time investment most companies are ill equipped to provide. Fueled clients forgo the workload but still profit from its expertise.



"Some people still see optimization as just another marketing tool. In reality, it's the most important step companies can take toward building successful business," said Pam Watkins, Fueled Communications president. "Steve was into Internet marketing before most of us knew what 'logging on' meant. He has the experience to keep Fueled clients at the top of the page."

Dallas Advertising League Establishes New Memorial Award

DALLAS, TX. – April 14, 2005 – The Dallas Advertising League (DAL) announced today that its board of directors has established the Mark Johnson Member of the Year Award as a memorial to a former president who died in late 2004. It will be awarded every year to the Dallas advertising professional and DAL member that exhibits the greatest commitment to the industry and the association through committee involvement, time and resources invested, and demonstrated ability to make a positive impact on the organization.

In recognition of Mr. Johnson’s commitment to scouting, the DAL will make a contribution to the Boy Scouts of America. For more information on this award, please visit the Dallas Ad League website, http://www.dallasadleague.org .

A past president and long-time officer and director of the Dallas Advertising League, Mr. Johnson, 58, passed away at home. on Friday, August 6, 2004. He had retired as the Southwest Region Advertising Manager of the Wall Street Journal.

Well known for his persuasive style, Mr. Johnson’s leadership, perseverance and good humor helped save the Dallas Advertising League at one of its lowest points. Having volunteered to assume the first vice president’s job and then the presidency, Johnson was instrumental during his presidential term from 1997-1998 for revitalizing Ad League programs and events, and bringing the League back to financial solvency.

“It is altogether fitting and proper that the member of the year be named for Mark Johnson,” said Steve Wellman, current DAL president, “since every year that he served he fulfilled that role.”

Under his guidance and care the DAL became, once again, a vital force for advertising in Dallas, the AAF Tenth District and AAF nationally. He maintained a tight hold on the financial reins by staying on the board as treasurer following his presidential term, and continued to serve the League in a number of capacities. All during that time he fostered the idea of participation in other marketing communications clubs in the area, an idea many feel was key to the League’s recovery.

Johnson loved the outdoors, enjoying camping, cycling and scuba diving. Always the leader, he was an intrepid Boy Scout leader, serving on the district council, and proud to see both of his sons join him in the rank of Eagle Scout.

Americans Start to Boost Data Protection

SAP INFO: "Americans Start to Boost Data Protection
In the wake of several leaks of Americans' personal data, politicians look to be getting more serious about data protection.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein has introduced a beefed-up version of her bill to combat identity theft, CNET News.com reported. The update adds new guidelines on types of data covered and reporting policies to the ID Theft Notification Bill, proposed by the California Democrat in June 2003. The legislation would require organizations that collect the personal data of US citizens to inform consumers when their information has been lost or stolen. Lawmakers became focused on privacy protection after consumer data broker ChoicePoint gave criminals access to the confidential information of more than 35,000 Californians. Since that mishap was first reported in February, numerous other organizations, including hospitals, schools and businesses, have reported exposures of data.

'Every day, we learn that we are more and more at risk from identity theft � entire databases have been lost, stolen, or hacked into,' Feinstein said in a statement. 'We desperately need a strong national standard that says whenever a data system is breached, everyone who is at risk of identity theft must be notified,' she added. Feinstein's bill, which requires organizations to inform people in writing or via e-mail when their data has been exposed, closely resembles California's Security Breach Information Act (SB 1386). Currently, California is the only US state that has a law requiring consumer notification on its books.
