Special Provisions.

                  A. Conversion Shares: Any amount due any Holder hereunder,
                  including each installment of interest and the entire
                  Principal Amount due (at maturity or upon Acceleration), may
                  be converted at the option of any Holder, in whole or in part,
                  in a single transaction or series of transactions, to common
                  stock of the Company, par value $0.01 per share, at the
                  conversion price of Thirty Cents ($.30) per share (the
                  "Conversion Shares"). When issued and delivered, all
                  Conversion Shares shall be duly authorized, validly issued,
                  fully paid and nonassessable.

                  In the event any Holder desires to convert any amount due or
                  to become due hereunder, such Holder must provide prior notice
                  of its intention to convert any such payment to the Company in
                  writing (the "Conversion Notice"). Each Conversion Notice
                  shall set forth the requested date, no more than one hundred
                  twenty days nor less than ninety days thereafter, upon which
                  conversion is to be effective (the "Conversion Notice
                  Effective Date"). Each Conversion Notice shall also include
                  the projected amount of the total obligation payable to such
                  Holder on the Conversion Notice Effective Date, calculated in
                  accordance with the terms of this Note, and the dollar amount
                  thereof for which conversion is requested (the "Converted
                  Payment Amount"). Upon conversion, the number of shares such
                  Holder shall be entitled to receive in consideration of the
                  Converted Payment Amount shall be calculated by dividing the
                  Converted Payment Amount specified in a Conversion Notice by
                  thirty percent (.30).

                  In the event a conversion notice is timely received by the
                  Company, the Company shall take all necessary action to cause
                  its transfer agent to issue the applicable amount of common
                  stock in the name of such Holder and deliver the same to the
                  Holder as soon as practicable following the Conversion Notice
                  Effective Date, but in no event more that five business days
                  thereafter. Any Conversion Notice timely received by the
                  Company, requesting a Converted Payment Amount in an amount
                  less than the entire projected amount of the total obligation
                  payable to such Holder on the Conversion Notice Effective
                  Date, shall require the Company, in addition to the issuance
                  and delivery of the Conversion Shares, to pay such Holder, in
                  cash or a cash equivalent, the balance remaining after
                  deducting the Converted Payment Amount from the total amount
                  due and payable to the Holder on the Conversion Notice
                  Effective Date (the "Post Conversion Balance Payment") and
                  deliver the same to the Holder on or before five business days
                  following the Conversion Notice Effective Date.

                  In the event the Company fails to issue the applicable amount
                  of common stock in the name of such Holder and deliver the
                  same to the Holder on or before five business days following
                  the Conversion Notice Effective Date, or fails to pay the
                  entire amount of any Post Conversion Balance Payment when due,
                  in addition to the Conversion Shares and all other amounts
                  payable hereunder, such Holder shall be entitled to receive
                  additional interest on the aggregate total of any Converted
                  Payment Amount for which Conversion Shares have not been
                  delivered and any unpaid Post Conversion Balance Payment at
                  the rate of 18% per annum, calculated on per diem basis,
                  commencing on the Conversion Notice Effective Date and
                  accruing until the date all Conversion Shares and the entire
                  unpaid Post Conversion Balance Payment is received by such
                  Holder (the "Additional Interest"). Additional Interest shall
                  constitute interest hereunder with respect to any other
                  provision of this Note.

                  B. Warrants: In partial consideration of this Note the Company
                  hereby agrees to issue to the Payee warrants to purchase from
                  the Company One Million (1,000,000) shares of duly authorized,
                  validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable Common Stock of
                  the Company, par value $0.01 per share at the exercise price
                  of Thirty Cents ($.30) per share. (the "Warrants"). The
                  Warrants shall expire not less than five years from May 30,
                  2008, be exercisable on not less than ninety days notice to
                  the Company and be otherwise exercisable and include terms and
                  provisions similar to other warrants issued by the Company in
                  similar private placement investments.

         Attorneys' Fees. If this Note is placed in the hands of an attorney for
collection after default, or if all or any part of the indebtedness represented
hereby is proved, established or collected in any court or in any bankruptcy
receivership, debtor relief, probate or other court proceedings, the Company
agrees to pay reasonable attorney's fees and collection costs to the Payee(s)
hereof in addition to the principal and interest payable hereunder. The Company
also will pay Payee all other amounts actually incurred by Payee as court costs,
lawful fees for filing, recording, or releasing to any public office any
instrument securing this loan; the reasonable cost actually expended for
repossessing, storing, preparing for sale, and selling any security; and fees
for noting a lien on or transferring a certificate of title to any titled
collateral offered as security for this loan.

         Severability. If any part of this Note cannot be enforced, this fact
will not affect the rest of the Note.

         Usury. All agreements between the undersigned and the holder hereof,
whether now existing or hereafter arising and whether written or oral are hereby
limited so that in no contingency, whether by reason of demand for payment or
acceleration of the maturity hereof or otherwise, shall the interest contracted
for, charged or received by the holder hereof exceed the maximum amount
permissible under applicable law. In particular, this section means (among other
things) that the Company does not agree or intend to pay, and Payee does not
agree or intend to contract for, charge, collect, take, reserve or receive
(collectively referred to herein as "Charge or Collect"), any amount in the
nature of interest or in the nature of a fee for this loan, which would in any
way or event (including demand, prepayment, or acceleration) cause Payee to
charge or collect more for this loan that the maximum Payee would be permitted
to charge or collect by Federal law or the laws of the State of Nevada (as
applicable). Any such excess interest or unauthorized fee shall, instead of
anything stated to the contrary, be applied first to reduce the principal
balance of this loan, and when the principal has been paid in full, be refunded
to the Company. The right to accelerate maturity of sums due under this Note
does not include the right to accelerate any interest that has not otherwise
accrued on the date of such acceleration, and Payee does not intend to charge or
collect any unearned interest in the event of acceleration. All sums paid or
agreed to be paid to Payee for the use, forbearance or detention of sums due
hereunder shall, to the extent permitted by applicable law, be amortized,
prorated, allocated and spread throughout the full term of the loan evidenced by
this Note until payment in full so that the rate or amount of interest charged
to the account of the loan evidenced hereby does not exceed the applicable usury
ceiling. Payee may delay or forgo enforcing any of its rights or remedies under
this Note without losing them. If for any circumstances whatsoever, interest
would otherwise be payable to the holder hereof in excess of the maximum lawful
amount the interest payable to the holder hereof shall be reduced to the amount
permitted under applicable law; and if for any circumstances, the holder hereof
shall ever receive anything of value deemed interest by applicable law in excess
of the maximum lawful amount, an amount equal to any excessive interest shall be
applied to the reduction of the principal hereof and such excess shall be
refunded to the Company. This Section shall control all agreements between the
Company and the holder hereof.

         Collateral. The indebtedness evidenced by this Promissory Note shall be
secured pursuant to that certain Security Agreement of even date herewith,
executed by Maker in favor of Payee..

         Captions. The headings are included herein for ease of reference only
and shall not be considered in the construction or interpretation of the terms
and provisions of this date.

         Assignment. The indebtedness evidenced by this Promissory Note shall be
binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto, their successors
and assigns.

         IN WITNESS WHEREOF, VISEON, INC. has caused this Note to be dated May
