Taking the plunge

As some of you may know, my day job is with VeriSign R&D. Over the past year or so most of my work has been focusing on standards development and product deployment within the EPCglobal Network framework. Essentially its all about the confluence of RFID and Internet based B2B standards for frictionless supply chain management.

Well, I've decided to go off and do my own consulting and software startup that will target the smaller companies out there that have never been able to take advantage of the supply chain management techniques that Wal-Mart and P&G use to remain competitive. But it's not about EDI. It's about using the Internet as a platform for providing radically cheaper solutions that will disrupt the current supply chain management marketplace. The company is called Refactored Networks, LLC and will be open for business around January 1.

I'm still doing space stuff in my spare time though! And I'm still parttime at Masten Space Systems.
