This website was designed to have an aesthetic that always matched the posters for the show on stage.

Initial Inspiration

For years American Stage had a tiny theater in a strange building, so when they built a new theater we used the architectural drawings to make a backdrop for the season’s posters.  Once built, a photo of the building became our new backdrop.  Eventually this morphed into a new design that featured the poster art for each show as the background for the home page.  Always fresh and pertinent, and unique – just like American Stage

Implementation

On Sundays after the last matinee show closed, Internet Adept updated the styles and supporting graphics for a fresh, new look perfectly matching the other promotional materials for the next show!

“My updated web site looks phenominal.  I am very, very pleased!

When Internet Adept updated our site to be in compliance with the latest coding standards – and to make ordering easy on cell phones – I was delighted to find several unexpected enhancements.

I love, love, love what they did to the contact page. It looks sharp! The submenu is great. I like the cleanliness and uniformity. And I love the new jQuerycalendar in the order form.

Best of all, we reviewed the demo site on a conference call with GoToMeeting to make final changes all at once. What a fantastic way to do this!

For nearly a decade, Internet Adept has provided us with superb web site services. Internet Adept continues to stay abreast of the latest technology, security and marketing techniques, smoothly guiding us into WordPress, FaceBook and social media while keeping us number one in the search engines. Our (NEW) site goes bling!”

I have known Dewey for nearly 20 years, so Internet Adept was a natural place to turn when I launched my weather forecasting business and needed a professional website.

My project was challenging in several respects: I needed a logo, an attractive web site and a complex back-end to manage subscriptions for a pre-existing (and disorganized) database.  But I was not sure exactly what I needed, so the scope and details of the project evolved.

Throughout the project, Dewey was responsive and helpful.  Dewey coordinated every aspect, and effectively liaised between the specialized sub-contractors and me.

Each day I receive compliments on my website from both clients and prospective clients.  The website has not only helped grow my business but also handles back-office duties, freeing me to focus on serving clients.

Thanks Dewey!

Literally the first radio station in Florida to broadcast on the web, WMNF Community Radio now has four online streams.  Here is an article from 1997 about how Internet Adept and the WMNF Board of Directors made that happen!

WMNF now captures global audience
Arthur Frederick

Just a few months ago, public radio station WMNF-FM lost its state funding and didn’t know whether it would be able to remain on the air.

Now, thanks to a computer-savvy volunteer and a board of directors willing take a risk or two, the station can be heard around the world on the World Wide Web.

The station began bouncing its signal across the Internet in early July. And listeners have been checking in from some very unusual places, saying they have picked up the signal, which originates in Tampa.

The project started about a year and a half ago, when WMNF volunteer Dewey Davis-Thompson approached station manager Rich Eiswerth with an idea.

“Dewey had been helping the station put together a World Wide Web site, and he told me about the possibilities of cybercasting,” Eiswerth said. “We made a pitch to the board of directors, and asked for $10,000 to fund a one-year project.”

Not everybody was on board right away, but they voted in favor of the experiment anyway.

According to the station, all one needs to hook up to WMNF through the Internet is a computer, an online connection, and some free software called RealAudio.

We decided to try it out.

We found the RealAudio software by going to the WMNF Web site (http//wmnf.org) and clicking on the RealAudio link. We downloaded the software, rebooted, then went back to the WMNF Web site and hit the appropriate button.

At first, nothing happened.

Then, a minute or so later, a frog-like voice confirmed that we were tuned to 88.5, and then a minute or two after that we started to hear the WMNF afternoon jazz programming. The sound quality was pretty good, although the signal disappeared several times over the next few minutes, and then came back.

“It is balky at times,” said Eiswerth. “The signal depends on a number of connections that you are making, how many people are online and so forth.”

It may seem like a complicated way to listen to the radio, and if you live in the Bay Area you may as well just flick on the stereo. But if you live somewhere else, it is a great way to stay in touch with the Bay Area and with WMNF.

“We are very pleased with the response we have gotten so far from former listeners who have moved elsewhere, and from people who simply stumble across us,” Eiswerth said. “We have come across regular listeners in Sweden, Australia and the Balkan countries, and that is very exciting.”

After living just off donations for many years, WMNF finally started receiving a state subsidy last year. But the Legislature later cut off the state funding because of pressure from state Sen. John Grant, R-Tampa. Grant objected to some of the WMNF programming.

The station thought it might not survive, but an emergency on-air fund-raiser replaced the money the state took away.

Eiswerth said there is enough money in the bank to pay for a second year of Internet broadcasting.
