Julie is a multi-faceted communicator, organizer, marketing coordinator,
launcher, ideas generator -- with a big picture, futuristic and authentic
perspective. Julie worked with Flemming Funch
in Los Angeles under the Synchronicity Networks vision of creating self-sustainable
modules of linking new paradigm ideas, people and projects. Their technology
is called Cr8 by OrgSpace. We offer
web-based module interfaces, offering services such as IT Consulting, Software
Development, Social Software, Online Communities, Open Source, Personal and
Also a Priestess of Isis, "She of Ten Thousand Names", specifically the faces
of the Magdalene and Morgan le Fey, Julie has been musing and writing a book
called 'The Scarlet Thread' for about 8 years. Other areas of personal interest
include: mythology, mysticism, anything eclectic, herbal lore, activism,
nature and feminism.
Julie is strongly interested in: collaboration, new-paradigm economics that
works with the 'Cultural Creatives'
and the 'invisible
indicators' of morphogenesis and global change. Julie is
currently living in the ancient isle of Avalon -- Glastonbury, Somerset in
the UK. She is pictured here with her beautiful daughter Chantal Louisa
Roe, born on 9th April 2001... who is now almost three already! Last
year she spent several months in the Joshua Tree region of the Mohave Desert.
Julie lived in the Los Angeles area for 9 years and was born in Portland,
Mutually beneficial contract relationships and partnerships. Consulting
opportunities, research and portal info-gathering tools and structuring.
Collaborators, and contacts in UK and Europe. Free lance only.
Her work with Flemming in OrgSpace can handle: Creative and challenging
software projects, preferably cutting-edge Internet related, or webserver
administration and automation projects. Self-Organization. Knowledge Management.
Preference for projects that involve communication with all stake holders,
and the opportunity to see a project through its whole life cycle. Preference
for projects that involve creativity and independent, self-motivated work.
Hourly: $50-150. But I prefer not to work by the hour. My enthusiasm,
ideas, focused attention, creativity and experience is hopefully worth a
lot more to you than punching a time card/ clock!
Monthly: A good arrangement is to agree on a monthly amount that
is big enough that ample attention is given to your project -- and small
enough that you can focus on longer term results, rather than on tracking
hours. E.g. if you want myself or my team to help you out with determining
a bit of copywrite, organizing a campaign, managing communication, for consulting
with portals and creating dynamic e-interfaces, $1K might do it. If you require
a lot of ongoing communication and weekly research support, $2K might do
it. If you have ongoing consultantcy and software development needs, it would
need to be more than that -- and would need to be done in tandem with OrgSpace
and would require Flemming's programming expertise.
Full Time: Not usually done, unless it somehow harmonizes with
all my other jewelled facets. If you have a very exciting project that requires
most of my time, I am an unstoppable fire-horse-woman workaholic,
but I'd expect to see $150-250,000/year.
Per Project: OrgSpace doesn't programming from specs from scratch
for a price defined in advance. That usually doesn't work well
for any of the parties. We do have some existing modules that we might configure
for your use, and we might be able to put a price on that. E.g.
website portal, weblog, bulletin board, article management, chat
room, calendar, member area, and more. We can use these
modules to help create a dynamic interface and can be hired to help you plan,
manage and research your project. I can do a lot of e-marketing small
campaigns on a project to project basis.

"At the ends of the universe
is a blood-red cord that ties life to death, man to woman, will to destiny.
Let the knot of that red sash, which cradles the hips of the goddess,
bind in me the ends of life and dream."
