Okay, everybody. This just got serious. I mean – REAL SERIOUS! Audit is scheduled to come in after Labor Day & I know they’re going to look at this contract & see everything that went wrong. We have to figure a way to work around it. We just have to. The customer would have nailed us to the floor if we had any delays in delivery. Even a 1 day delay. All those errors could have cost us!

Re: Contract XTN-4977 Budget

Steve,

Yes, I still have that original sheet.  You didn’t know because you didn’t see the final totals.  The cost overruns for each testing mode weren’t included in what we gave to you.  So that’s on us.  And apparently that’s part of the problem.  David is pointing out the fact Audit will ask why we ran over budget on the testing.  But I don’t know how we’ll get around it.

And going back to what I said from the very start: we need to find a way around it.  All those errors in the first delivery could’ve cost us the whole contract.  But, like I said, we’ll deal with that later.  Right now we ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO COME UP WITH A SOLUTION TO EXLAIN IT TO AUDIT!!!  I hate to sound like I’m panicking, but in a sense, I am.

Sadly yes that is what I’m saying.  Besides it’s a 20 mil contract.  Everything was supposed to be right from the beginning.  Long before that 1st delivery!  We should know with this client & their global reach they don’t have time for little crap like a programming error.  They were taking a chance with us anyway, being their first time with us.  We really could’ve lost that contract!!!!

I don’t know where the breakdown occurred, but it did.  We still need to work around to explain to audit.  Remember, this is a $20 m contract!  We HAVE to come up with a solution.  Audit will rip us a new one when they see that $1 m overrun.

I’m still hyperventilating about that 1 mil!  If someone screwed up somewhere, then we need to find out who it was and what they did.  And how did it get past QA/QC.  You’re not suggesting we redo the figures are you?  That data has already been input into the main system.  It’s something we can’t just recall and say there’s a slight miscalculation.

The First Laptop Computer

Osborne

Here’s another gem from the early days of computer technology.  In 1981, Adam Osborne, a British author and book publisher, introduced the “Osborne 1”: the world’s first portable computer.  As with most technologies, the idea of a portable computer wasn’t new in 1981.  Such nerdy luminaries as Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak had conceived of it years earlier.  Osborne just had the good fortune of meeting a far-sighted engineer named Lee Felsenstein at the West Coast Computer Faire in March of 1980.  Osborne knew what he wanted: an affordable computer that people could carry around with them and the software to make it function.  Felsenstein had the skills and the same ambition as Osborne to turn that vision into reality.

On April 3, 1981, the Osborne Computer Corporation released the Osborne 1 – a device that cost $1,795 and weighed just under 24 pounds (10.7 kg).  With a tiny 5-inch display screen and its dependency on floppy disks, which limited its data space, the machine was somewhat impractical for most business functions – even back then.  But, after officially hitting the market three months later, OCC sold 11,000 of them within the first eight months.  Their profits soared, as did their staff – from two (Osborne and Felsenstein) to over 3,000.  Sadly, despite earning $73 million within a year after the debut of Osborne 1, OCC declared bankruptcy on September 13, 1983.

A Quarter Century of Webs

Tim Berners-Lee’s 1989 template for what would become the World Wide Web. Image courtesy: World Wide Web Consortium.

On this day in 1989, the Internet, as we know it, was born – at least on paper.  Like film, radio and television before it, the Internet technically had a slew of birth parents.  But, for the most part, one man figures critically in its creation: Tim Berners-Lee.

Born in London in 1955, Berners-Lee graduated from Oxford University with a degree in physics.  Immediately after graduating, he went to work for a printing firm, but in 1980, he began working as an independent contractor for CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, in Switzerland.  There, he had to consult with other scientists and researchers from across the world, which presented unique challenges with varying time zones, languages and communication methods.  To facilitate the process, Berners-Lee began working on a project based on the use of hypertext, a data-specific language developed by Ted Nelson, an American scientist, in the 1960s.

Born in New York in 1937, Nelson apparently was diagnosed with attention deficit disorder (ADD) as a child.  His frenetic thought patterns (a hallmark of ADD sufferers) probably led him to create the hypertext system.

Berners-Lee called the prototype of his program “Esquire.”  He has been smart and gracious enough, though, to give credit to all of his computing predecessors, such as Nelson.  The concept of electronic mail (email), for example, was developed at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) as a simple file-sharing system and first demonstrated in 1961.  That evolved into a system of message transmission MIT dubbed “Mailbox.”

Another early similar program was called “SNDMSG.”  That functioned in conjunction with another system called “Advanced Research Projects Agency Network” (ARPANET), which first appeared in 1971.

Accolades must also go to Douglas Engelbart who invented the computer mouse in 1963 and first demonstrated it five years later.  Like most inventors, Engelbart envisioned his creation in the usual manner: doing something completely unrelated.  In his case, he was driving to work when he imagined “people sitting in front of cathode-ray-tube displays, ‘flying around’ in an information space where they could formulate and portray their concepts in ways that could better harness sensory, perceptual and cognitive capabilities heretofore gone untapped.  Then they would communicate and communally organize their ideas with incredible speed and flexibility.”  But, even he can’t explain why he called his device (first made of wood) a “mouse.”

Berners-Lee took all of these ideas and materials and composed “Information Management: A Proposal” that he presented to CERN on March 12, 1989.  From that, he ultimately created the “World Wide Web.”  With the help of Robert Cailliau, a Belgian computer scientist, he presented the first version in 1990 and put it online the following year.  The first web page address was http://info.cern.ch/hypertext/WWW/TheProject.html.

His initial goal was merely to help CERN be more productive.  But, while Berners-Lee visualized a grander purpose for the “Web,” even he couldn’t predict the impact his creation would have on the world.

Douglas Engelbart presents the first computer mouse on December 9, 1968.

Quote of the Day

“While many people, particularly younger people, rely more on social messaging than email, email is still the preferred method for long-form communication.  Microsoft wants desperately to run away from Hotmail…. Hotmail got very stale with its feature set and needed to be replaced for this decade’s use of richer media, like photos and video, social connected accounts, video communications and chat.”

– Patrick Moorhead, an analyst with Moor Insights & Strategy, on the demise of Hotmail.

I had a Hotmail account – waaaaay back in 2003.  Wow!  That was so long ago.
