Media placement: The Business Journal Serving San Jose and Silicon Valley, "Software Will Send Ultrasound Images Over Internet, "by Kathy Robertson (March 10, 2000), article excerpts:

"IntraCom appears to be the first to send ultrasounds over the Internet, observers say. 'We are excited about our research and development,' said IntraCom spokesman Calvin Naito."

"Four rounds of private financing between mid-1997 and the end of 1998 generated startup capital of $11 million ($18.5 million in 2019 dollars)..."

As vice president of communications, Calvin obtained coverage in over 20 media outlets (general and trade publications) during IntraCom's first product launch. IntraCom was Calvin's second venture with start-up firms, and both were eventually acquired by larger enterprises.

Media placement: Los Angeles Business Journal, "L.A. Deserves a Viable Stadium Plan," by Larry Walsh (March 17-23, 1997), op-ed excerpts:

"Don't you miss doing or seeing "the wave" at one of our own professional football team's games? Los Angeles may be well into the 21st Century before we have another chance to do a wave -- unless we mobilize around the building of a new state-of-the-art stadium that will draw an NFL team. The best site for this stadium lies at the hub of our city in downtown Los Angeles..."

"This new stadium and a new football team will enhance the lives of most of us -- and bring construction and permanent jobs ...They would also help build a stronger city by creating a central meeting place for all Angelenos. A new stadium and team would engender community pride."

The op-ed was ghostwritten by Calvin as a project under Calvin Naito Enterprises, whose clients have included, for example, companies in the medical cannabis sector, other consulting firms, Loma Linda University Health, nonprofits, cities, and a large water district in Southern California.
