newsflash

Most of the marketing and public communications is being done via Twitter.  As of September 2010, current information about our services and areas of interest are available at Twitter username: @charles_consult.

Did you know that there are different types of website just as there are different needs for different businesses or projects.  Let charles consult help you decide which choices are the best for your project.

computing

Computing in this context means the bundle of skills necessary to develop, design, and deliver modern 2.0 - 3.0 websites and the ability to manipulate modern databases and datasets.

The computing concept from charles consult has for the past 15 years has been cross-platform in nature - that is, the programs and methods used are appropriate for Windows, Macintosh, and Linux based systems.

Computing also means turning ideas into visual representations.  Different situations call for different methods of peering into the structure of a thing.  These examples of diagramming come mostly from the fields of engineering and computing.

 

Disaster plan: hospital communications.

The four parts of the emergency management cycle are: mitigation, preparation, response, and recovery.  The creation of a disaster plan is an important part of preparation.  Ham radio operators (amateur radio operators, of which I am one) are used all over the world, to maintain emergency communications in times of crisis - often being stationed in hospitals.

 

 

A website organization.

This is the website organization of a Dutch interim-management company.  Due to the complex nature of this business and the fact that we spoke different languages, diagrams became an important way of sure communication.  That said, cultural differences can make a critical difference in the degree of success in a project.

 

 

A martial arts "family tree" diagram.

This is a diagram of the many "stylistic" connections ("style" as an interpretation of a "way of doing, knowing, and being", as transmitted by a teacher or school) within about a 100 year period, that martial arts can flow through, in order to become manifest in one person. It is similar to a family tree, but with multiple parent lines.

 

"Old skool" tools (pencil, paper, slide rule).

Sometimes you have to compute using old fashioned methods (like, when there isn't a computer - or even electricity available). Most of my web designs begin with pencil and paper. Business models I can create with a napkin sketch, and calculations can be done with the simplest of calculators, spreadsheets (or even a slide rule).  If a plan is viable, you probably don't need fancy equipment to tell you.

  • tiny tales
    I was asked by Sonj.N.Stan.Niaah (@cultureDoctor) from Twitter to document my tweets. My tweets run from personal observations, to memories, to politics. I submit them, misspelled words and all (I hate my autocorrect). I never learned to moonwalk (I thought it was corny) It just occurred to me that my father was moonwalking back in […]
