James,
I'm also very interested in your Strategem company, and I'm going to try to reach out to local business, for speaking and consulting work based on military and political history. In fact, I just blogged about on my profile this morning. I'd love to discuss our ventures further, including if you're interesting in penetrating the Pittsburgh market. Please e-mail me at jim_lineofdeparture@hotmail.com and perhaps we can help each other out.

Jim
