Educomp is probably the oldest extant computer support business on Martha’s Vineyard. Pat Gregory recruited me within minutes of the decision to leave Vinyard.NET. I greatly enjoyed my tenure working for such a well organized Windows IT business. I was able to bring my somewhat exotic skill set to bear in ways that remain repeatable and supportable today.
Vineyard.NET was a long labor of love. My 2 partners and I started Vineyard.NET inasmuch simply to fund our own Internet access and it became a surprisingly desirable service for Islanders. We wrote our own software for accounting, customer fulfillment, e-mail filtering, web site support, domain registration, credit card and ACH processing, intrusion detection, and much more.
BB2W was a venture-funded company whose intent was to provide high-speed internet service using wireless for the last mile. Like many such companies, it did not survive the end of the Tech Bubble.
