Freesoundtrackmusic.com Since 2008, the FREE SOUNDTRACK MUSIC system has been available online. Initial version: store royalty free music in an online database. Then, premium music would require purchase. In January 2017, the system was expanded to feature realtime mirroring of user accounts, activity and music content: MASTER / MIRROR swapover and automated error detection and restart now allows for high availabilty even when technical problems occur or upgrades are being installed. Music search by custom keywords or color association. Newest implementation of this system: Small independant music publishing businesses take note! For a more detailed demonstration of all of the components in the Free Soundtrack Music Service, check out the FREE SOUNDTRACK MUSIC System Overview Diagram.

2004 - The Wizzypage Web Design Layout Tool
The Wizzypage application was an experiment in drag-and-drop editing of web pages with a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) design interface. (In fact the name "Wizzypage" is based on that acronym with the letters morphed slightly from WYSI to Wizzy - and in retrospect, perhaps the name should have just been "Wysipage" to ensure that potential users were not inclined to imagine someone "taking a wiz". The original system had two components: a Windows based client application and a Java based server application. Both of the components made extensive use of databases. On the client side, an embedded database stored all of the text content and style sheet formatting for every page while the server side delivered the web pages which had been "saved" (uploaded). This application/service was released as a "Beta" prototype for a few years and for some reason became modestly popular in Brazil. Without any real strategy for monetizing this free service, the project was gradually phased out. A description of the desktop-only implementation is still available HERE.
1997 - 2012, The Cut'n'Mix Word Machine:
In addition to creating on-the-fly RAM based word arrays in response to a request from users to do a word randomization operation, Cut'n'Mix contains a unique proprietary dictionary database which assigns words to grammatical categories like: nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs etc. This allows the application to randomly reassemble text according to a format defined in one of several different "text effects". The last production level of this Windows application was 5.4, which reflects the number of updates and additional functions which have been added over the years, including such things as automatic poetry.
Version 1.2 of The ROBOCOLLAGE Automatic Collage Builder
ROBOCOLLAGE stores images and text in an embedded database to be selected randomly for automatic construction of a web page MASHUP. And when I say "mashup" I mean really mashed up: The image files are just strewn and layered randomly across the page... In addition to randomly drawing from this pool of prefab web page elements, the program also optionally allows for mixing up digital photos or artwork from a user-designated folder. The version 1.2 release is now free for personal use, with a small licensing fee required for users who want to publish or upload the collage artwork that is generated by the application. To view examples of artwork created with the ROBOCOLLAGE, Go to the Automatic Collage Gallery HERE. To download the application installer or find out more details about the application, go to the ROBOCOLLAGE Information Page HERE.
The Public Representative Constituency (Party Wreckers) System
Inspired by the current insane and troubling condition of Western Democracy, database designer C.P.Bryan is reviving a system design project which has been on the "back burner" since 2014. This experiment into the realm of direct (or "participatory") democracy asks the question: Is there a way to make politicians more accountable to their constituents? The initial project outline was the conclusion of a two year review of political theory and careful reading of publications dealing with the growing frustration and disillusionment that citizens have with the modern status quo in politics. Why has "social media" failed in providing a more effective approach to citizen involvement in the political process? This design project is based on the the following fundamental assumption:
The primary reason voting citizens feel that their government does not represent their interests is that elected politicians must take direct orders from the political parties they belong to. In other words, the parties come before the people. A new social networking system used by representatives and their constituents could undermine the creepy mind control that parties exercise over their members...
