FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

Women In History Wall Chart Planned 

 

August 29th, 2001 (Toronto) -- Synchronopedia announced that it began development today on its next reference timeline wall chart. Like its first wall chart on "firsts" in science & technology, this Women In History (WIH) wall chart is also expected to be 40" x 28" (101.6 cm x 71.12 cm). It will chronicle influential and prominent women throughout history. " Mr. Seepe, CEO of Synchronopedia, says, "It is not our purpose to lament the woes befallen women throughout history. This project celebrates the abilities, influences, accomplishments, and contributions that women have brought to the world throughout the ages. There are many women lost to obscurity or whose achievements have been purposely suppressed. This wall chart will move all of those women one step closer to the light."

 

It is currently planned that WIH will cover the same time period as the science & technology chart - 1000 BC to the present. Arguably, the advances for women's rights, and the accessibility of general knowledge of their accomplishments, are heavily weighted from the late 1800's to the present. Therefore, it is likely that a different "epoch" scale and time line will be developed and used. There is also likely to be a special "single" period for all entries collectively before 1000 BC.

 

The Company acknowledges that this project will never satisfy everyone, or every agenda. The express hope is that this wall chart will be a testament to the achievement of women-kind in the face of insurmountable obstacles, which were nevertheless surmounted. This wall chart is being created to inspire women, and educate men, rather than anger either side. Wherever possible, events are presented in their “positive” light, being that they reversed the implied “negative” state of affairs present at the time.

 

A conscious and deliberate effort is being made to present Women In History in a truly global perspective. While a great deal has been written about events in America and the United Kingdom (and their importance should not be diminished), it is our hope that we will glean enough research to present a more global perspective. However, it is too early to determine if availability of information will permit this kind of relative balance.

 

It is planned that each event will bear:

  • a date

  • the name of the person and/or event

  • a short biographical paragraph

  • where possible, a photograph (wall chart space and photo accessibility permitting) - we hope to have at least 300 photos

  • the nationality of the individual at birth

  • the nationality of the individual at the time of the event.

 

Currently, the planned categories, and the type of content covered by each category, are as follows:

 

Statecraft and Conflict (not covered elsewhere): royalty, politics of influence, court, aristocracy, elected politicians, diplomats, military leaders, spies, civil servants, revolutionaries, radicals, nationalists, military leaders, criminals

 

Womens’ Rights: suffrage, contraception, nursing, equal pay, physical and mental abuse (wife beating, marital rape, infidelity, constant anger, etc.), property ownership (physical & intellectual), genital mutilation, divorce laws, social equality, equal education, women trafficking & forced prostitution, inheritance rights

 

Religion & Occult: religious leaders, religious doctrine affecting women, witches, heretics

 

Humanitarism: philanthropy, philosophy, health & wellness, medicine, sociology/social work

 

Education & Associations: Nobel prizes & other awards, women’s institutions and associations, academia, scholarship, history

 

Science & Technology: self-explanatory

 

Daily Work Life: labour relations, management, non-traditional roles, finance, perceptions of roles & responsibilities

 

Arts & Entertainment: cinema and television, dance, literature, poetry, journalism, music, photography, theatre, visual arts, fashion, fine arts, architecture, interior design, beauty, cosmetics

 

Athletics & Adventure (not covered elsewhere): aviation, sports, adventure, terrestrial exploration, space exploration

 

Daily Home Life: customs, practices, perceptions of roles & responsibilities

 

The above is the current planned theme and orientation. If you have any suggestions, comments, feedback, criticisms, points of view, etc. we highly encourage you to visit our Web site (www.synchronopedia.com) and send us your feedback. Be assured that every comment will be reviewed and considered. Also on the Web site, you can be notified when the project is completed by adding your name to the Company's e-Mailing List and checking the option "Notify me about new products."

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

Synchronopedia Corp. Founded to Develop "Synchronous Chronological Encyclopedic" Products 

 

November 1, 2000 (Toronto) -- Synchronopedia Corp., a Toronto-based, wholly-Canadian-owned private company, was founded today to develop and bring to market a number of products that its founder, Christopher Seepe, has been evolving over the last several years. 

 

Says Seepe, "I started developing the Science and Technology Chart several years ago, as a kind of labor of love. Other things always seemed to inhibited its progress. And the technology required to produce such a product was also beyond reach of a start-up company. Only in the last year or so has the technology been reachable and dependable enough to embark on such a venture. The S&T wall chart was developed on a 1.2 GHz PC with 750 MB RAM using CorelDraw, Corel PhotoPaint and a variety of ancillary software tools. Even then, the project was very demanding on the computer's resources."

 

The Company's mission, says Seepe, is "to develop products for the global market which present reference information in a "synchronous chronological encyclopedic" graphical form." He acknowledges that the Company's  name is a bit of a tongue twister - Synchronopedia - but it is a "word" he created by contracting the words synchronous, chronological and encyclopedia. These three words represent the essence of the Company's mission statement and defines the basis of the products it will produce. 

 

The Company believes that the history of "anything" can be much more interesting and better understood if the topical historical events are presented in an obvious visual way relative to each other. Then they  superimpose well-known or well-studied topics and events such as famous people, major conflicts and major world events to give context to the topical events of the chart. 

 

Seepe adds, "It took me about 3,000 hours to complete this first project, and I believe that this time expenditure represents only 10% of the effort required to make the wall chart a commercial success. Now the sales and marketing effort begins." And, according to the Company, this effort will begin with the company's full-service Web Site. When the Web site is operational the Company expects to be able to accept online credit card, fax, telephone, mail, email and purchase orders.

 

Using our Firsts in Science and Technology wall chart as an example, while Napoleon I of France was conquering Europe at the turn of the 19th century, what discoveries in medicine were taking place? What new technologies were being developed or invented? This is the premise of the words synchronous and chronology. The encyclopedic aspect is an extension of the time chart whereby each time chart entry has associated details, photos, illustrations, etc. This is the future direction towards which the Company is headed. The Company hopes one day to evolve the time charts themselves into a kind of graphical index of an encyclopedia.
