Welcome to ubeme -

I was never big on social media's idea of branding yourself,  seeing how big a media amplifier I could build, or win an internet popularity contest.  I would rather spend the time working on ideas, concepts and solutions to problems.- mark somple


WHO?  Take a nerd, combine that with a renaissance man, and insert a childlike heart that likes to solve problems.  Let him brainstorm and distill concepts and solutions in a skunkwork's environment.  Then take the solutions, prototypes, financial plans -reinforced with years of start up, entrepreneurial and international "experiential" value, into the real world.

BACKSTORY – UBEME was an idea in the early 90’s when we had video conferencing reflectors and wanted to bring the Internet to educate school students.   UBEME was going to be a site where school kids could log in and pick from a variety of occupations where the professionals would be wired with cameras for a “day in the life” ability to tag along and experience various professions…this version of  UBEME is much simpler - the directions are posted below.

R&D WORK pages are some  of the main elements of where I spend my time.  Click on whatever image to get a brief snippet about it.  

BRAINSTORM CAFE is a place where i deposit thoughts - typo's and grammatical mistakes included at no charge.  Who knows what will come out -post brainstorm? 

There is also a SEARCH box at the BOTTOM OF THE PAGE as well as the BRAINSTORM CAFE SIDEBAR.
