Reading through your discussion about micro-site I noticed that there is SO MUCH manual work involved!
What if we add to Gumiyo the ability to create microsites on the fly, and maybe even have our platform register the URL in GoDaddy DNS for you?
As I write this I will be leaving to go to the 9pm Campus Vigil. My wife had cousin whose daughter was in the cafeteria of the May 21, 1998 Springfield, Ore shooting. My desk is less than 1 mile away from Cole Hall. At 3:08 A Squad car went past at 60-70 miles an hour. I sit a block away from a busy intersection. I had a customer sitting with me and I said: Wow I have been sitting at this desk for 14 years and have never seen a squad car go by that fast. A few minutes later one of our mechanics, who is a volunteer fire fighter, told us a level 5 ambulance call went out. That ment EVERY available ambulance in the county to respond. People from the university began picking up their cars and trucks. One lady works in the same building as the campus PD told us of officers coming with large blood satins. I had close friends son of whom I have baby sat for was walking into the area as people were running out, screaming to run the other way. We got a fed-Ex delivery at 3:20ish, He said he was delivering books, head popping, he looked into his van because he thought boxes were falling down. We at the store have many connections to people affected by this since-less tragedy. We are 2 blocks from the Campus. The question will always remain: Why? Life is on a thread. We must be ready for that thread to snap. Is there an after-life? I believe so. I also have the confidence of where I will spend eternity. If anyone reading this posting doesn’t have that confidence, I would be more that happy to talk to you about it. Please say a prayer for our community. Thanks
To one of the few that still sports a good mustache...thanks for reserving a spot at the Marriott in SF to get everyone together. I did not get to be there as long as I would have liked, but my time their was fruitful. And that is what this is all about.
I respect what you are doing here, Ralph.
Let me know if I can be of assistance in any way. -Ryan
Great to meet you. We missed each other in SF although my partner's at Autodata were telling me about you. Perhaps there are some synergies beetween us... I look forward to exploring them with you and meeting soon!
Hi Ralph, I have been on vacation for the last week and a half and apologize if you thought I was ignoring you. I will be happy to email your wife some info on our new CTS along with the Supplier and GMS prices. Also, when you are in the area please feel free to stop in and say hello. I love meeting new people in the biz!
Thanks for the nice email.
I'm so glad you were able to visit with Gary, he really looks forward to seeing you. I'm so embarrassed that my house was such a mess. That's what happens when one starts working. (And gets a dog). Anyway, I'm having a great time, it's really a lot of fun and I can already see the opportunities. I'm going to start attending more conferences and hope to become more knowledgeable about all this stuff! You look great in all your pic's too. Tell Elizabeth Hi for me and I'll also get some pictures up here soon.
Thanks for starting ADM. I'm blown away by how quickly it's become a valuable resource. It's clear digital marketing in the car business has grown up. You're helping it grow further and increasing industry professionalism. Look forward to seeing you at NADA.
Great site-can't wait until NADA. It was nice meeting you last year and look forward to seeing you again.
I see you started an eBay group with this fellow David Romeo- I would be carefull. He has a very bad name in the industry and I can tell you of some dealer horror stories.
That's me! And, that's a pretty long time ago. I'm working with a group called Open Secure Access now -- which is a consortium of technology companies and dealers that advocate open systems within automotive retailing. I appreciate the opportunity to join the group, and your most pleasant welcome! Greg
