About

This about page originally existed on the now-defunct Openvision.tv website that focused upon the ION product and the Cruxy.com website. We are continuing to present these pages with as much unaltered text as possible as a service to those who may have an interest in the products, the company, or its founders and employees.

We will keep these pages up in their current state until there ceases to be significant traffic concerned with the old Openvision.tv site. At that time, we will present an Online Casino USA site which will mainly focus upon online slots information.

About Us (Jon Oakes and Nathan Freitas)
ONTV was formed in early 2005. It is a privately funded venture located in Brooklyn, New York.

About Jon Oakes

He founded a systems integration consultancy in the mid-nineties and, with Nathan Freitas, founded and managed ThinAirApps, which was acquired by Palm Inc. in 2001. Oakes spent over two years at Palm Inc., as Senior Director managing corporate and product strategy. Oakes has a BA from Skidmore College and an MBA from Harvard Business School.

Also Mac Watts of Clean Edge and his team of fanatic coders (last worked on the Burger King ad campaign that featured Wally the Duck) contributed much of the javascript.

If you would like more information on any of the products mentioned here, be sure to check out Mac’s blog (links from tinyworld.eu) or search for him on this site. There’s also some info on the ehow.com site – search for openvision.tv (one word).

Above & beyond that we also have a wealth of other information on the subject as well. It might take some sorting out to get everything back in order but we are working on it all of the time & we appreciate your patience. Once we have everything in place there will be no comparing with the amount of data we have placed all in one location for ease of access.
