Web Spinners in 1996 as a Sole Proprietary and in early 1997 took Steve Crandall in

Organizations like Citizen Action, Clean Water Action, National Campaign
for the Environment, S.C. Wildlife Federation, and PA Environmental
Campaign. In 4 years Michael worked directly with thousands of citizens
all over the United States to help secure Healthy and Consumer friendly

process's and issues. Michael has continued his activist roots in Web Spinners by ensuring all services provided are the highest
quality and at the lowest possible price.
As a Visionary and Philosopher, Michael has helped ensure the steady,
sustainable growth Web Spinners has enjoyed since its
inception. His experience running non-profits has helped ensure the
financial stability and strict budget that must be maintained to ensure
growth in this competitive and booming industry.
Steven "Tarantula" Crandall
|Steven moved to Western Pennsylvania
in 1986. After a short internship where he repaired PC's - he was hired to service computers and build clones in the Pittsburgh Area. He quickly became bored with that, and began to work with applications and databases, and then wrote some utilities and
application software. Then he moved on to servers and networks. In his spare time he ran a free Bulletin Board System and played chess. Steven met Michael over the chess board (more or less). Many games later, Steven was finally enticed into
web spinners as a full partner.
Over the years Steven has attained many industry certifications including
CNE, MCSE, CCNA, and many others. Currently working towards his CCIE, he dove head first into the depths of networking and the Internet.
His strong background in hardware and extensive knowledge of computing
systems has proven invaluable to Web Spinners over the years, ensuring only the
best equipment is purchased and is always running smoothly.
At Web Spinners Steven keeps the servers serving, the networks networking, and dabbles in web application development.
Being an old school programmer Steve knows how to get great programs built
quickly and effectively.
Kenneth "Big Guns"
|Ken has been working with Web Spinners
talents have been helping Web Spinners refine and add-on to existing E-commerce Web
Applications and build New ones.
Ken brings an initiative to programming that cannot be rivaled. He
repeatedly out does himself and everyone around him by having his projects
completed on-time, correct and even a little better than planned! Never
afraid to learn new ways to program, Ken is a true Hacker as he always
incorporates what he learns and progresses to unexpectedly high
productivity. His vigorous and innovative style in programming have won
him Web Spinners's #1 programming position. When we need the "Big-Guns" for
a project you can bet Ken is in the middle of the plan!
Ken is a kind humanitarian dedicated to helping the Web Spinners Guild
provide volunteer programming services to non-profit human rights
supporting organizations. His best known work may soon be the Carnegie
