Hello Prof. D'Arcy,
I feel like a student who wandered into the back of a class, sat down in
the wrong seat, then found the material fascinating :)
I was searching "Securitization" on Alta Vista and found:
which lead me into your virtual classroom. Great stuff.
I have been researching issues of insurance and complex computing
This interest evolved from work performed on the Millennium Bug (Year
problem). I came upon your web presence from Alta Vista which picked up
the word "Securitization" in your description.
I am a principal in a software tools company, OrcaSoft, Inc. My
was in theoretical physics and I have worked for many years in the
development of systems software. At OrcaSoft we have a small core of
programmers. We are seeking a dialog about the Year 2000 problem with a
knowledgeable actuary, preferably one with experience in the reinsurance
We are convinced that the Year 2000 Problem is a real business problem
a technical origin. The solution to this problem will involve
insurance techniques as well as software technology. We are seeking
entrepreneurial dialog, not offering to assess and solve your Year 2000
problem. This problem requires very fast and expert response but the
rewards to the entrepreneur are vast.
Beyond the year 2000 the entire issue of insuring against a wide variety
computer systems failures will be required. These systems have far too
economic importance to be neglected by the risk management, insurance
reinsurance community. The EMU and Internet commerce will raise large
opportunities for risk managers.
I would very much appreciate it if you could provide me with a referral
a colleague who might also be interested in pursuing this opportunity.
you are no doubt aware, time is of the essence.
