Between the Lines

It was old home week here at U.S. 1 when we received

the latest edition of the Inc 500, Inc Magazine’s listing of the

country’s

fastest growing private companies. Of the 500, five are from the U.S.

1 circulation area. All five have been featured in U.S. 1 at one time

or another — three of them on the cover:

No. 39 on Inc.’s list: Floorgraphics of 5 Vaughn Drive,

the provider of in-store (often literally underfoot) advertising and

promotion services (U.S. 1, April 28, 1999).

No. 57: Heartland Payment Systems of 130 Nassau Street,

the credit card and payroll processor (U.S. 1, November 19, 1997).

No. 167: SimStar Internet Solutions of Carnegie 202, the

provider of web-based services to the pharmaceutical industry (U.S.

1, May 23, 2001).

No. 190: EPAM Systems, the Emmons Drive-based software

developer that just added another site in Russia (U.S. 1, August

7).

No. 465: Newton Interactive of 2425 Pennington Road,

provider

of web-based IT services (U.S. 1, January 23).

Floorgraphics’ Richard Rebh, photographed in front of Nassau

Hall, also participated in a lively dialogue on the subject of

"where

did you learn to grow a company?"

And Robert Carr, CEO of Heartland Payment Systems, was one of three

CEOs who answered the question "are you rich yet?" Noting

that he bought out a group of investors in 2000 for $15 million and

then sold that same interest a year later for $40 million, Carr

nevertheless

insisted that money has not changed his life. "I still walk to

work and still wear the same old khaki pants, much to the chagrin

of my family." He was photographed in those khaki pants, in front

of his office with the Annex restaurant awning prominent in the

background.

Kudos for Google

The October 9 Survival Guide item on the DataBytes program at the

Princeton Public Library described how information services librarian

Janie Hermann explores the hidden Internet not accessed by Internet

search engines that do not index PDF files or pages within databases.

Our story lumped Google into that basket of search engines. Hermann

wrote to inform us that Google is the exception and in fact "is

leading the way with the development of PDF search technology."

Hermann also noted that she graduated from Queen’s University (not

College — that is a different school in Canada) and the University

of Western Ontario (not West Ontario).

From Midori & Friends

IT WAS SUCH A PLEASURE to read the article about Midori and Midori

& Friends (September 25). I was particularly excited to see the

wonderful

way in which you captured the essence of Midori’s views on music

education

as well as the work that our organization does. Midori & Friends

always

appreciates new interest in our programs.
