    WebVision Speaker - Raymond King

    in Computers

    In high school Ray and a friend launched "The Computer Workshop" to train students on the use of Apple II's and IBM PCs. This company was featured on EyeWitness news and the New York Times.
    Several years later, while in college at M.I.T., he wrote project management software for his father's architectural firm. This project turned into a company, Semaphore, Inc., which in 1990 had risen to be rated #1 among all of the competitors in that arena (by ARCHITECTURE Magazine). By 2000, the company had over 2,500 clients, 100 employees and was acquired by Deltek.

    Later that year, Ray moved to from New York City to Portland, Oregon, to co-found SnapNames.com. Inventing several new ways for people to acquire domain names, the company eventually grew to over $49MM in revenue and was ultimately acquired by Oversee.net. His current venture, AboutUs.org has pioneered the idea of an "editable overlay" for the entire web. Serving over seven million unique visitors per month, the company profitably employs 30 people in both Portland and it's branch office in Lahore, Pakistan.
