Members of the Yahoo! group exIntegrity are discussing an Integrity Solutions Alumni reunion sometime soon.

Neither a date nor a location has been decided upon, but current ideas are Old Chicago in Roseville, Sgt. Preston's or Grandmas in the 7 corners area, and Duluth. If you're interested in getting together with any of the other alumni, head over to the exIntegrity group and express an interest or opinion.

If anyone has ideas of what they would like to see me do with the site, let me know. - phaedrus

For various reasons, this web site has not been maintained for about two years. For much of that time, I have not been able to access the e-mail address that was previously listed, so if you have sent me updates or requests to be listed, please resend them to rphaedrus@yahoo.com and I promise to be more diligent this time.

what's this all about?

isnt.com was originally purchased by David Appleby and Jason Goray to provide a personal playground for the employees of Integrity Solutions (is.com). An early version of isnt was created by Steve Weintz, but the concept never really took off as Integrity entered a period of financial difficulty which culminated in the purchase of the company by Key Investments.

Once purchased by Key Investments, Integrity was combined with MSPInteractive and a few folks from Talent Information Management to become Keytech. Some time later, Keytech decided to focus more on back end programming and spun off their design team and a couple programmers who were combined with employees from Yamamoto-Moss to form AisleFive. As more time passed (as well as what, from the trenches, looked like some bad blood here and there), Keytech and AisleFive separated further. Both companies changed names as AisleFive became Aveus and Keytech became IS.com. Some time later, Key Investments stepped out of both companies as Aveus was purchased by Chris Mahai, and IS.com was purchased by Wam!net.

Enter the new market - business and contracts were slow, and both companies have had heavy rounds of layoffs. Very few of the people involved throughout all of these gyrations are still with any form of the organization. Many of those who have moved on still remember the potential of "what could have been" with melancholy fondness, and consider themselves "IS Alumni".

This site has been dusted off slightly and re-purposed to serve as a place to list the alumni of IS and Keytech, and to provide links to contact them. The domain also serves as my personal play space. Feel free to get in touch with me regarding whatever.
