While Sparky's camera is under repair,
one of the early members
of my MUSC IT Lab provides a different view of the bridge.
Something about Brian. Brian distinguished himself in our IT Lab
with 1 great idea / week. By Wednesday if there had been no new ideas I would
always lean on Brian - "What is the great idea of this week?" and Brian would
come up with yet another terrific concept, idea etc. He is a web developer
of extraordinary ability. Brian could come up with a working prototype
of our portal (http://my.musc.edu), of a workflow manager and you name it.
Brian could pull together a working prototype within a few days. From Brian's
rough draft the rest of the team would polish it and extend it. The IT
Lab was special - everyone had their own speciality - Nathan, Christopher,
Matthew, Robert, Josh, Brian C, Brian M., Satya and Nafees.
Within the walls of the IT Lab, I was the junior learner and these guys were
the senior learners.
Brian graduated from the IT Lab about two years ago. (No one every quit - they
all graduated). Brian went to Blue Ion, LLC
an interactive marketing agency. Recently Blue Ion moved to the Cigar
Factory - on East Bay and across from the Port. From Brian's window, you
can see the bridge worksites. So here is Brian's first contribution.
Here is Blue Ion's new home

The Grace / Pearman worksite and a progress report. When last Sparky
had his camera operating we saw the foundation of the mid-span support for
the Grace truss. Now you can see that the support is in place and ready
for our iron-worker acrobats to start some serious unbuilding. Looking
more closely, it looks like Chris and his 7550 + our ironworker
acrobats have unbuilt all the struss structure between the last two
Grace legs (left).
Sparky's camera should be back soon - and between Brian, Sparky and anyone
else - lets pick up the story and continue. From Singapore, wish I could
