iL2M International Corp. (OTCQB: ILIM) Signs Jeff Schimmel as Executive Producer of the Michael Blackson Morning Show

(the "company" or "iLink2Music.com") (OTCQB: ILIM), an emerging music entertainment and social media company announced today that it has signed Jeff Schimmel as the executive producer of the Michael Blackson morning show, which will soon air on the Company's first commercial radio station.

Schimmel began his 25 year career in the entertainment industry by selling Archangel, a Cold War spy thriller, to a Hollywood production company while still in law school. After earning a Juris Doctor degree, Jeff teamed with Rodney Dangerfield and Harold Ramis to write the full-length Warner Brothers animated movie, Rover Dangerfield. This quickly led to a screenplay assignment for Orion Pictures/20th Century Fox and his first TV writing job on the top 10 ABC sitcom, Full House.

After writing and producing a series of short films called The Schimmel Papers for the Fox TV series The Sunday Comics, Schimmel became a writer on the groundbreaking Emmy Award winning sketch comedy series In Living Color, worked on the fledgling WB Network's first sitcom, and then served as a producer on the last NBC TV special starring the legendary Bob Hope.

Soon after, Schimmel sold To See You Again, a World War II film project, to Steven Spielberg's Dreamworks/SKG Studios, wrote the comedy featureTrue Blue for Oscar winner Martin Landau's Pentagon Pictures at MGM/UA, performed script consulting services on numerous TV and film projects, and even contributed his comedy writing skills to an NBC/Pax TV game show, Balderdash. Over the years, Schimmel wrote and produced one hour and half-hour comedy specials for HBO, Showtime, and first run syndication -- and has appeared on camera in many of them.

More recently, Schimmel spent three seasons as supervising producer and writer on Comedy Central's controversial Mind of Mencia, and also produced No Strings Attached, a highly rated, one hour Comedy Central TV special that sold over a million copies on DVD.

As writer/producer, Schimmel worked for Warner Brothers, BET, CMT, Caravan Pictures, Canada's Paragon Entertainment Group, the government of Bermuda, and a new TV production company in Israel. In addition, Schimmel worked extensively with radio industry giants Clear Channel, AM/FM, Radio One, and Emmis Communications as the creator, writer and executive producer of many top rated radio morning shows around the country. His own company, Comedy Quest, provided original material to radio stations in the U.S. Also in the recording industry, Jeff wrote and produced tracks for three CDs from multi-platinum rap artist Busta Rhymes and was Executive producer on the comedy CD titled Reserection.

Since 1985, Schimmel wrote and produced for TV and film stars such as Jim Carrey, Jamie Foxx, Bob Hope, Harold Ramis, Dave Chappelle, Ellen DeGeneres, Rodney Dangerfield, George Lopez, Robin Williams, Tracy Morgan, Bob Saget, Peter Boyle, Damon Wayans, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, David Alan Grier, Bobcat Goldthwait, Tim Meadows, Gene Simmons, Ken Jeong, Keenen Wayans, David Steinberg, John Stamos, Martin Landau, Kevin Pollak, Busta Rhymes, Cheech Marin, Carlos Mencia, and his brother, late comedian Robert Schimmel.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
Blockchain. A day doesn’t seem to go by without seeing articles and discussions about the technology. According to PwC executive Seamus Cushley, approximately $1.4B has been invested in blockchain just last year. In Gartner’s recent hype cycle for emerging technologies, blockchain is approaching the peak. It is considered by Gartner as one of the ‘Key platform-enabling technologies to track.’ While there is a lot of ‘hype vs reality’ discussions going on, there is no arguing that blockchain is b...
The need for greater agility and scalability necessitated the digital transformation in the form of following equation: monolithic to microservices to serverless architecture (FaaS). To keep up with the cut-throat competition, the organisations need to update their technology stack to make software development their differentiating factor. Thus microservices architecture emerged as a potential method to provide development teams with greater flexibility and other advantages, such as the abili...

The use of containers by developers -- and now increasingly IT operators -- has grown from infatuation to deep and abiding love. But as with any long-term affair, the honeymoon soon leads to needing to live well together ... and maybe even getting some relationship help along the way. And so it goes with container orchestration and automation solutions, which are rapidly emerging as the means to maintain the bliss between rapid container adoption and broad container use among multiple cloud host...

This significant program blended the best of NetApp’s solutions and services capabilities to enable this telco’s successful adoption of private cloud storage and launching ...
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
