- delivering custom interfaces

- implementing brand strategies
A complex system that works is invariably found to have evolved from a simple system that worked. A complex system designed from scratch never works and cannot be patched up to make it work. You have to start over, beginning with a working simple system.

Nine lives of Catomatic web production:
- Budget constrained
"If you have $100, your budget for your project is $100. If it costs $101, you can’t do it." 
- Service oriented business
Catomatic is sort of like a plumber. Everyone has varying degrees of expertise and inclination to research, purchase, and install a water heater.
- Depth of knowledge
- Professional contact pool
Catomatic really is just one guy, in case you couldn't tell. Catomatic feels like Rickey Henderson sometimes. Rickey Henderson played on a team. Maybe you like Rickey Henderson, maybe you just like The A's. But Rickey Henderson has Paul Molitor's mobile phone number.
- Diligent effort & Vigilant maintenance
Catomatic doesn't like to get embarrassed by turning out something ugly, shoddy, or copycat (no pun intended). That's not to say it hasn't happened, but it stings. If it breaks, Catomatic fixes it!
- Mobile first (but looks good at Grandma's)
For some, it's a debate. For Catomatic, it's a fundamental principle of development. But it'll change when there's a Computer Glasses® kiosk at the mall.
- No mobile apps
Mobile apps are awesome, but they're a huge resource drain. Catomatic has made one mobile app. It was just like a web site, except it only worked on iPhones and took six months.
- Web links, not weblinks
Check out how well Catomatic uses web links on this one page alone. It's like Wikipedia up in here! I am pretty proud of myself.
- I love cats
Do you love cats? Then that makes us practically family. You don't like cats? Well now I know how to make you sneeze.
