Sometimes, explaining to vendors what was required necessitated some visuals.
I spent most of 2000 and 2001 building out data networks for the dot com boom.
Lots of heavy Cisco, PM and logistics experience. Long hours but very
satisfying projects to implement and successfully complete.
Due to vendor delays, I decided to establish inter floor data connectivity in the Statler Building in Boston on my own terms. This involved throwing several 100ft Cat 5 cables out the 14th floor window and subsequently fishing these cables in the 9th floor windows.
Unknown to me at the time, the Israeli Consulate was located on the 10th Floor.
Suffice to say, I nearly caused a diplomatic incident.
