It was fun yakking with you just now-here is a re-spin of the idea,
my computer is giving me some trouble today so I hope this arrives w/o
looping or being chopped! Forward here: The designwork is one of many
which I own, that have specialization characteristics for the FORMAT
and STORAGE of Information through colorization 'templates.' Although
the designwork and proposed use shown here is for what appears as a
recreational or 'fun' use; ones very like this are especially mapped out to
be multi-purposeful and could perhaps compose the 'embedded'
area of the new technologies we are currently looking at as 'wearable'
or even 'smart-card' etc.
Pleasehave Tim give me a call when he's back from the conference.

Dear Ms. Sweeney,
Thanks for your attention in bringing this matter to the attention of Mr.
Sabean. My proposal is like frosting on a cake for the GIANTS!
Please excuse the reuse of the form here my computer stuck right after
we spoke this morning; & the FAX phone apparently has a major 'glitch'
so this is about the only way I'm able to get the info out today!
RE: A 'Decimalized'( 'Digital') GIANTS Logo @ PAC BELL PARK ...4Y2K?

For: Brian Sabean; Promotions Director
c/o China Basin Baseball Group
6603 3rd Street
San Francisco, California
Dear Mr. Sabean,
Hope I have this to your attention in time for the premiere
of the new Pac Bell Baseball Park at China Basin. The idea is for a
simple designwork to inaugurate a sports arena in the "WIRELESS AGE!"
With a plethora of hand-held computing devices available to the
average person, the NUMBER-PAD and KEYBOARD layouts are more a feature
of the ordinary work day than ever imagined before! The idea behind an
'optical -illusion' "LOGO" composed of numerals in place of letters, is
based the premise that there has been an almost imperceptible new
turn at the level of ADVERTISING, and as most of the ADVERTISERS will
of course be 'TECK-STOCK' and 'START-UP' and such-if the GIANTS'FANS
are themselves looking at the figures...?
Sunday Jan. 16, 2000's Examiner Sports FrontPage on which you were
featured-had my announcement on PAGE CL52, 710 Business Opportunities
of the same date in SF Sunday Examiner & Chronicle Classified Ads: and
the complimentary ONLINE VERSION w/ HOTLINK URL had this messaging:
Designwork for Sale! $1,500,00
Great Sports Promotion Situation
available for the Wireless Age!
I am offering to the GIANTS for sale my designwork titled: 614275
which will serve as another splendid example of San Francisco style
memorabilia; fitting in nicely with the MUNI symbol, Ruth Azawa's
fountain at Union Square, Ghiradelli, North Beach, Ferry Boats, Wine,
French Bread, Santana's music, KQED, etc. The whole enchilada!
Thank you for the consideration,

Subject: NEWS RELEASE: Electronic Imaging Conference
Date: Wed, 19 Jan 2000 14:38:04 -0800
Electronic Imaging 2000 Showcases Digital Color Publishing
"Will our company logo be the right color with sRGB or do I need ICC

Next week, the Symposium on Electronic Imaging, January 23-28 in San
Jose will provide the answers. Short courses on document imaging will
cover a range of topics including elementary color science, image
quality factors in color reproduction, and optical document security.
"Over the years the conference on Color Imaging: Device Independent
Color, Color Hardcopy, and Graphic Arts has become the world's most
prestigious conference on this subject and is a cornerstone of the
Symposium. Electronic Imaging 2000 will have a day and a half of short
courses on Color Imaging Sunday and Monday followed by four days of
papers Tuesday through Friday. The presenters include the best
specialists from all over the world," said Rich Ellson of Xerox Palo
Alto Research Center, a member of the EI Symposium Organizing Committee.
The Symposium on Electronic Imaging is cosponsored by the IS&T--the
Society for Imaging Science and Technology, and SPIE--The International
Society for Optical Engineering. Since its inception in 1989,
Electronic Imaging has been based in the Bay Area. After starting out
in Santa Clara, the two societies moved the conference to the San Jose
Convention Center in 1991 where it has continued to both grow in size
and evolve in subject matter. This year a total of 962 papers will be
presented in 24 conferences, and the organizers expect 1500 technical
"Understanding the emerging interests of Silicon Valley
imaging professionals has helped make this symposium a very rapid means
of communicating important new ideas, training people in new imaging
disciplines, and building a community for moving technologies further"
says EI 2000 Symposium Chair Giordano Beretta of Hewlett-Packard in Palo
"In the past year we have seen a revolution in document imaging, moving
beyond electronic publishing, where electronic imaging was used
separately in each stage of the workflow. Today we talk of digital
publishing, an integrated process that is fully digital from end to
end. At any time, a color piece can be repurposed for an arbitrary
output medium without quality loss or manual intervention. In addition,
spectral color imaging and advanced color management techniques open a
whole new world to system builders" explains Gabriel Marcu of Apple
Computer in Cupertino, one of the Conference Chairs.
Other areas covered by the symposium and of interest to the color
imaging community are capture and display, human vision, document
recognition, optical security and anti-counterfeiting, and Internet
Electronic Imaging 2000 will be held a the San Jose Convention Center
from January 23-28, 2000. Complete course and instructor descriptions
