I started a video production and web design company last month: Cascade Creative Productions. I specialize in helping small businesses become successful in the viral, digital revolution! This includes creating WordPress web sites, video production, setting up google analytics accounts to track web usage and google adWords to help drive traffic to your web site.
4 ~ Please describe any projects or businesses you'd like to develop, if any? What is your "JOB" (aka "Joy of Being")? What especially delights you?
I'm interested in turning local businesses on to a new web content management system called WordPress. Upon development and delivery of a new web site, WordPress allows anyone to update their own web site with simple changes without the need to pay web developers or buying and learning expensive, complex web editing software.

The founders of a California company are gearing up to make a difference in their state’s future—about 2 million gallons worth of a difference. As the state battles a lengthy drought and considers spending $7 billion to $9 billion to produce, transport and store fresh water, WaterFX, a San Francisco-based, independent water producer says it has been testing a potential solution for the past year.
It functions by filling the black boiler with salty sea water in the morning, then tightening the cap. As the temperature and pressure grows, steam is forced downwards through a connection pipe and collects in the lid, which acts as a condenser, turning the steam into fresh water. Once Diamanti established the fundamentals were sound, he experimented with a series of concepts for the aesthetic of the object.
Hope you've enjoyed civilized life, folks. Because a new study sponsored by NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center says the world's industrial societies are poised to collapse under the weight of their own unsustainable appetites for resources.
