Welcome to the Clue Factory
The Clue Factory is a software design and development consultancy with expertise in the following areas:
- Web applications;
- Networking and security;
- Databases (OO, relational, hybrid);
- Distributed systems (middleware, messaging layers, etc.);
- Graph-based systems (visualization, reasoning, semi-structured data);
- Parsers, interpreters, grammars, and language in general.
The Clue Factory was founded by me, Sean Levy, as an avenue for my free-lance and open-source work. I have been hacking for my bread for almost 30 years, on everything from PDP-11's to large multiprocessor clusters on some of the world's busiest networks. I am also a dual Mexican/American citizen and am fluent in both English and Spanish.
I am responsible for several open-source projects, and have been lucky enough on occasion to get paid by the man for writing open-source software. I lean towards the BSD side of the Unix world; I particularly favor OpenBSD but also am a heavy user of FreeBSD and Linux (mainly Debian-based distributions).
Affiliated Sites and Projects
We maintain several other web sites here, including:
- RedYucatan.com: affordable, bi-lingual web hosting service
- Wookie: a wiki I wrote and still use to publish writing, ideas, and software
- flail.org: the official home of the mail program I wrote in Perl and use for all of my own email. It is command-line oriented and rather terse, but can do some very powerful things with a little coaxing.
