Apr 24, 2001, 01:00 ET from theFurious Inc.

    DETROIT, April 24 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ -- Leading
 interactive branding agency, theFurious Inc., today announced the launch of a
 new interactive website dedicated to the 86th anniversary of the Armenian
 Genocide.
     Located at www.theforgotten.org the new website commemorates the Armenian
 Genocide of April 24, 1915, with a dramatic presentation of photos from the
 event, the ABC documentary with Peter Jennings shown on national TV last year,
 a map of the cities and towns where the Genocide took place in Turkey as well
 as interviews with several Armenian Genocide survivors.
     "This is an effort to bring together present-day technology with
 historical facts of the Armenian Genocide of 1915," stated Patrick Sarkissian,
 President of theFurious.  "We have utilized some leading-edge technologies
 such as Macromedia Flash to illuminate the history of the Armenian people."
     This is not the first time that Sarkissian has directed theFurious towards
 Armenian causes.  On a recent trip to Armenia, he identified the lack of
 electronic education in that country and joined forces with other Armenians
 and the Fund for Armenian Relief to purchase and install 10 internet capable
 computer labs in Armenian schools and orphanages.
     "Each generation of Armenians has kept the memory of the Genocide alive in
 a variety of ways," Sarkissian said, "my generation has to focus on spreading
 awareness of the Genocide outside the circle of Armenians who already know its
 implications.  We have never had as powerful a tool at our disposal as the
 internet."
     theFurious earned its reputation by blending cutting-edge technology and
 interface design with advanced backend functionality.  One of the most notable
 interactive successes for theFurious has been the 2000 International Auto Show
 for Ford Motor Company.  Design and execution of kiosks, wireless Live Bots
 and the web site became the focus of a Macromedia case study.
     theFurious specializes in developing unique interactive branding campaigns
 via the internet, kiosks and wireless devices, utilizing their successful web
 site development process which carefully integrates the three arms of
 research, creative and technology.  The firm boasts an impressive list of
 clients including Ford Motor Company, Ogilvy and Mather, SkyMall, American
 Express, Lightning Audio, ProLink, Young and Rubicam, Rockford Fosgate, Cox
 Communications, Evening Star Productions and Excite.
