Hi all! I am glad I stumbled across this site. A lot of great tips and ideas.
I am involved with two ventures. The newest one is a Freight Data Services company called Everything Freight LLC (http://EverythingFreight.com). We provide a load auction board, a suite of agents and data reports. We also are gathering on the largest,continuously updated, DOT databases around and supply a whole range of accident, insurance, inspection data. We have a couple of lead generation tools for Insurance companies now, that provide weekly emails of all newly registered DOT companies in a state or region.
Also, in my spare time, I am also a consultant for my personal business Silva Tech Solutions (http://SilvaTechSolutions.com). My specialities are application development, hardware consulting, and general tech "fire-jumping". I really enjoy data-mining/processing jobs, but they are rare and in-between (hence my starting a company to work with it...)
