BURBANK, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/01/14 -- iL2M International Corp. (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.

Some developers believe that monitoring is a function of the operations team. Some operations teams firmly believe that monitoring the systems they maintain is sufficient to run the business successfully. Most of them are wrong. The complexity of today's applications have gone far and beyond the capabilities of "traditional" system-level monitoring tools and approaches and requires much broader knowledge of business and applications as a whole. The goal of DevOps is to connect all aspects of app...

When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved. Security is closely intertwined with the networking choices made for the hybrid cloud. Traditional networking approaches for building a hybrid cloud try to kludge together the enterprise infrastructure with the public cloud. Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
