I was asked to, in their words, build a website that would allow interaction between the office and their partners that were located at organizations around the globe. Content should be added to the website by building an application that would continually scan all of the computers in the office, as well as at their participating partners' offices. The application should be designed to look for specific content that would be useful to the office's website visitors.
I explained the term "worm". They were insulted and told me that companies do this all the time. Still a year later, a couple of people believe that I am mean for not creating this for them and making them write content for the website.
