Project Description: I rebuilt this animated text messaging system installed throughout the World Financial Center. I assessed the needs of the clients, designed the interface, wrote the code, documented the system and trained the users at Olympia and Yorks Arts and Events Department. I built an authoring system for building new screens, a system for porting screens from a database, and a system for scheduling the screens playback.

I worked with David Bixby of ESI Edwin Schlossberg Inc.

Technical Notes: I wrote the system in CANDO on an Amiga connecting to a Hash animation module. The system made extensive use of the Arrex language for interprocess communications. This ran 24/7 unattended for years until it was replaced in 1998.
