“Without Alan, Usatoday.com may not have enjoyed its early success in cyberspace. When the site launched in the mid-90s there were no roadmaps or examples to follow. Alan stepped up and in some cases single-handedly solved problems and made the life of those in all departments easier. Because of improvements Alan made, Usatoday.com quickly grew to become the largest newspaper-linked website in the country (it’s not anymore).”
