Richard Plucker has held many positions in the advertising and promotion world. He was the Ad Director at a daily newspaper in New Bern, North Carolina, when the President of the region approached him and asked if he knew what an internet portal was. That was 17 years ago, when people were still scratching their heads (or banging them), trying to figure out what the internet meant. The next thing you know he was re-inventing the portal and re-launching
