The first version of dlmReport.com appeared sometime in 2010. Our first effort utilized a Wordpress site that after about a month, was given the hook. A number of months later we started another version using Joomla, the technology that exists today. (Our decision was based on our ability to provide support... we didn't know Wordpress as well as Joomla)
Due to the juggling of other priorities, the site you see today was not "launched" until November of 2011. When we say launched, we just mean that we had at that time created a documented process of how Dave's morning email would be mirrored on the website. Dave continued to send email to his distribution list and to populate the website, we were doing a post-email copy-paste. Not very efficient on any scale.
Dave's eMail List...
Each day Dave would receive email from a variety of sources. He would assimilate these messages and decide which ones were important to him. As a member of upper management at a multi-national transportation firm, Dave had developed private distribution list that included, and still does, many decision-makers. Each morning at about 730AM Dave would send the notes he took for himself to his distribution list. This routine continues today.
On April 27, 2012 the email distribution became public ... meaning that anyone could join the list. We did this to become compliant with email distribution rules and to reduce the overhead associated with generating the message and maintaining the list. Now, anyone can join, with members controlling their list participation without having to email Dave.
What makes this a little bit unique is this: Dave continues to do what he's done. Every Monday - Friday he's up early to review the headlines in his inbox. He goes through the same process that he's been doing for years, but now he does this via an integrated system as part of dlmReport.com. The time he spends formatting his morning report has been significantly reduced. This means he spends more time on the headlines, more time giving perspective on what's critical to our national interest.
