Welcome to iOnTech
This domain was initially registered on August 22, 2000, to provide a domain to stage volunteer website development that was being provided to a small client list, as well as to host proof of concept work. In the years following, this has simply become the private domain of the owner, Jim Speaker, and continues to be a staging environment for POC and pet projects.
Smart Trip Maps, LLC
Founded in March of 2012, Smart Trip Maps' mission is to provide user friendly, cutting edge tools for outdoor enthusiasts.
Smart Trip Maps' first offering is a free Google Map based application that provides all the resources avid fishermen need: Fishing Smart Trip Map. Users can create markers, add notes to the markers, get weather conditions, moon phase, weather forecasts, stream flow gauges, tide charts, plan trips, maintain a fishing log, create fishing journal pages, and much more. When run in a smart phone web browser, this GPS-enabled application looks and behaves like an app without any need to download and install.
Jim Speaker began his career, if you could call it that at the time, by transitioning from being a rock climbing bum to being a guy with one child by marriage, another on the way, and a dream: to publish Spokane Rock Climbs. The book was written, photographed, designed and laid out by the owner while learning the intricacies of Freehand, Photoshop and Quark XPress. This all-photographic guide to rock climbing in the Spokane, Washington area was self-published in 1996 by Jim Speaker dba Stone Publishing.
Recently, Jim was hired as the CIO (Chief Information Officer) of FOREX Strategies, Inc. He built the current front-end and middle-tier of the FXS website from the ground up, leveraging extremely powerful database schema developed by the CEO and President, Samuel (Sy) Berger. In addition to doing what he does best, he has served on the Board of Directors and worked closely with the CEO on strategy and systems architecture.
