Hi Damo - thanks for your application!

I love the enthusiasm and activist spirit you have brought to the community over the last 6 months.

In your application you've used a lot of high-level, generic terms for what your contributions will be. There's nothing wrong with that as long as there is substance behind it. Please help us, and yourselves by explaining some of these in detail - what exactly will you be doing?

Please share a story with us of when you helped a community grow.
What metrics or measurables can we use to follow your progress going forward?

Kind Regards!
 
Thank you for applying to be an ANO! I'll likely have some specific questions later, these are simply questions I am asking all applicants.

1. Will you commit to, if elected, having, at the very least, the executives who will play a role in this ecosystem:
A. Signup for this forum with their username being First Name Last Name
B. Have a personal picture as their avatar.

It's not a requirement that this happen and some won't care but I personally will score those who won't commit to this a little lower and I want to be transparent about that.

2. Will you commit to having a logo created and/or submitted to this area within 30 days of your election (I would provide directions).

3. Will you commit to keeping this area updated for your team (it's easy).

4. Will you commit to providing at least a quarterly update on the progress your team is making in this area.

5. If you haven't already posted them within this thread, please provide the LinkedIn of anyone you mention as part of your team.

Thank you!

Hi MaxCollab Team,

Thank you for your application and detailed supplementary documents that you provided.

First, I don't think I've ever directly interacted with you (damo), so it's a pleasure to e-meet you here on Factomize. I've read many of your posts and comments on Discord and Factomize, and I'm impressed by your enthusiasm, optimism, and grit. You have a strong sense of self-assurance and are motivated (as evidenced by your efforts in applying in this ANO election, your former Grant proposal, and Guide candidacy last month).

1) My first question centers around the language chosen in the following sentence from your response on the ANO application:
Sphereon/Factom's work is covered when and however appropriate, which is often because the work being accomplished is highly relevant to the story Damo is trying to tell.
Could you expand on what you mean in this quote? Also, when you mention Factom, are you referring to Factom, Inc.?


2) My next question is geared towards your "Finances & Efficiency" supplementary document. In it, you describe:
We will maintain standard financials, which includes a Balance Sheet, Income Statements, and Cash Flows and Forecasting.
Do you intend to make any of these financial reports public? I will personally say that it's not my expectation that you do make these financials public, but if you do plan to make them public, I'd find that interesting from a transparency standpoint, as you would be one of the first ANO's to do so in this manner. Please also don't view this question as pressure any which way; I'm simply trying to formulate an understanding as to what you're pledging to do financially.


3) Another question that comes to my mind relates to "Ghost", Troy Wiipongwii. In the "MaxCollab Team Full Bios", you write:
Throughout Troy's academic and entrepreneurial career, he has amassed an extensive network in local and state governments in the legislative and judicial arena. This has afforded him the opportunity to push conversations about blockchain in the court systems that have huge potential for Judicial Blockchain Projects in the coming years.
Could you please describe the nature of how this network developed more specifically? Will Troy leverage these relationships to promote the Factom Protocol's potential to governmental entities? If so, how will he go about doing that? I am mostly looking for specifics, if possible.


4) From the "Offerings" Supplemental Document, could you please describe what the "Factom for Good" R&D Project is? Likewise, can you elaborate on what "The Factom Impact" documentary series is planned to be?

Generally speaking, in terms of MaxCollab's offerings, I think you have a strong vision and a clear philosophical message which I find unique in this ecosystem. However, when I sit down to tangibly digest MaxCollab's offerings, I find myself a little scatter-brained. I know you have interest in marketing, video production, podcasts, outreach, hackathons/events, and I understand that you seem to have an innate ability to connect with people. But specifically and explicitly, I have a hard time understanding the central elements baked into these areas of interest:

- What is the timeline for video production and podcasts?
- If elected as an ANO, what can we expect from MaxCollab in their first quarter of operation? or first year of operation?
- Please show me the work in the weeds -- the small steps baked into these ideas and areas of interest. Your supplemental documents are mainly bullet points about things MaxCollab intends to do, but doesn't adequately show me -exactly- what will be done and when.

As a first time voter in ANO elections, and as the representative for a Standing Party for the very first time, when I'm evaluating all of these applications, I am seeking a clear message and simple walk-through of what each team offers with measurable goals, timelines, and explicit language so that I am overcome with a sense of assurance that my vote for this applicant is well served. You have done a good job showing me your vision; now please show me the small steps and clarity that can guide me to a less high-level and more granular understanding of what you plan to offer and hope to achieve. Thank you and please reply at your leisure.
 
Ok still recovering from jetlag but here we go!

Thanks for the questions, @Colin Campbell! (We'll get to yours asap @Nic R)

Troy is my metrics guy. He’s gonna drop in tomorrow and break down three of our core offerings:

-Finding Clients
-Raising Awareness
-Recruitment of Talent

Here's a few things I already bring to the table:
Awareness:
-A biweekly podcast frequently featuring Factom Standing Parties www.whatthefork.show
-Daily advocacy and opportunity discovery at events, in my networks (including OG blockchain, startups, and green movements - both kinds), and throughout my days

Clients:
-Some exciting research and business development opportunities I can’t talk about yet (but others might)

Recruitment:
-Active recruitment of talent and community for the protocol, including Nonce - the first team I’m aware of to apply to be an ANO in Korea (Good luck you guys!) - and my partners Troy and Josh.
-Josh is working with @DanG, Motion Factory, and myself on a grant application for Targeted Audience Explainer Videos. Dan can say more about that.
-Troy is also working with Dan, building some advanced analytics tools for the marketing committee. Troy may be able to say more about that.

Troy and I have more ideas for the ecosystem/protocol and more than a few projects we’d like to find a home for as well. We’ll flesh those out a little more in the coming days, weeks, and months -- and we’ll be looking for collaborators. Our primary concern out the gate is achieving sustainable revenue and adding maximum value to the ecosystem.

--

Colin, you asked for a story. I wrote one. It's 7 pages long. I’m eventually gonna have to write a book.

Will post here (as a separate doc) w highlights this evening.

As promised @Colin Campbell, attached is a story about how I helped a community grow. It's long. Don't feel obliged.

Here's a teaser and a couple choice quotes:

In my first organizing role I took an almost defunct student group working on a third rail issue and grew it from 3 members and zero awareness to 150 members and the best political group on campus (as voted by the Student Government Association), ran a successful ballot initiative, received international press, traveled to at least 4 conferences, joined the national board of directors, was one of a dozen people to help determine strategy for the next 5 years of the movement, and declined an opportunity as Outreach Director of the international organization (biggest regret of my young life).

All of this happened in two years. In college. With a full course load.

Brown University Student Paper -
"Devin Ellis, a Maryland senior and chief of staff of the school's Student Government Association says "They've really gotten very organized this year. They knew exactly what they wanted and exactly how to go about getting it."

Devin also left an embarrassingly kind recommendation on my LinkedIn profile (this is real):

“Damien is an instinctively excellent organizing strategist. His ability to understand how to make messaging connect an issue and an audience, and his tireless enthusiasm for wearing out shoe leather make him an invaluable asset for your political, public awareness, organizing or issue campaign. He will see an angle or an approach to a problem that you never thought of before, but once you've heard it, makes complete sense. Hire him, listen to his ideas, let him help you get where you need to go!”

I apply these skills to advocacy and entrepreneurship alike. It's all the same to me.

Hey Everyone and @Colin Campbell -

I have tried typing up something coherent, and I hope this is what you were going for in terms of measurable metrics in terms of @damo contributions.

There are three major measurable metrics for Damo’s representation of the Factom Ecosystem:

  1. Finding Clients
  2. Raising Awareness
  3. Recruitment of Talent

Finding Clients can be measured in a number of ways, but the industry standard KPI’s would be most consistent with a Referral Coordinator. The following are the major KPI’s:

  • Retention of clients
  • Conversion of Referral to clients %
  • Dollar value of converted clients
  • Quality of client (does the client make the ecosystem look good)

Awareness metrics require a bit more creativity to parse out and are in part dependent on platform. The following list is a mix of KPI’s as well as data collection methods:

  • Standard impression, conversion, likes, retweet data on social media
  • Redemption offers given out at conferences and other awareness venues
  • Surveys*

The final metric can be measured most consistently with KPI’s of a recruitment specialist. These KPI’s are as follows:

  • Time to Hire = Date of Hire - Date of First Communication
  • Quality of Hire = (Performance + Productivity + Retention)/ N
  • Efficiency of Recruitment Source (conferences, online etc) = total conversions per source - the average of all sources
  • Average Candidate Experience = Sum(quality of candidate experience with recruiter)/N

While these metrics have a quantifiable element, there are many unobservables and this list does not fully capture the impact of the work done. This position brings energy that can have a causal impact on morale, which can only be measured by an arbitrary utility value. Identifying a critical point to pivot or insert Factom into a global conversation can only be measured by a counterfactual assuming a parallel universe :).

*If there’s interest, MaxCollab will research and, if possible, implement an on-chain Factom Standard for surveys. We’d be interested in utilizing DIDs and ZKPs to provide for infinite range of metrics tracking and use cases while protecting identity and sensitive user data. Obviously, to preserve privacy, only the system would be able to read this data. In the interim, I am playing around with some of Factoms marketing Data I received from Dan for the Marketing committee and working toward finding social influencer impact on Factom ecosystem on social media platforms.
 
Hey @Nic R thank you for the questions. For question 2, the answer is we are more than comfortable sharing our expenses with the community as they directly relate to the inflation income through Factom because it is the community's money. We are also open to exploring with the community where the line should be drawn between transparency and private business interests.

Could you please describe the nature of how this network developed more specifically? Will Troy leverage these relationships to promote the Factom Protocol's potential to governmental entities? If so, how will he go about doing that? I am mostly looking for specifics, if possible.
With DebtLESS Community, my first company, naive 21yr old me would journey to Annapolis a few times a week to meet up with different state delegates and senators to talk about tax reform to promote direct giving as a charitable contribution. (can explain this and its implications on my business another time) This caught the attention quite a few politicians, who remain close friends today. This put me in the position to continue to expand those connections, along with having family and family friends who are judges and politicians at the state and federal level in VA, MD and NJ. In terms of leveraging the relationship, it has already begun. Ingo Keilitz, a professor at W&M, and I have a forthcoming publication for the National Center of State Courts, where we discussed Factom as a potential platform for prototyping. This publication has spurned conversations in Ohio and Maryland where we will likely begin prototyping in both states within the next 6 months. In Ohio, this will take the form of rebuilding the warrant system of the states supreme court, in Maryland, it could take the form of prototyping a data management system in Baltimore City Circuit or Drug Courts.

For question 4 we will get back to you, we think that this is deserving of a separate thread and a team response.
 

Valentin Ganev

Factomatic
Thank you for you application, MaxCollab!

I value your energy and enthusiasm for the protocol. You also have interesting and unorthodox backgrounds and diversity is important for the ecosystem.

Some questions from me, regarding your submission:
  • in the team bios, you mention that Troy has published a paper on cryptocurrency regulation & regulators in Asia. Could you please provide a link to the publication?
  • in the team bios, you mention that Joshua was a university instructor in the past, and that he's been a speaker at different conferences and blockchain expos. Could you provide pointers to some of the talks, in case those were recorded?
  • if I am not mistaken, Troy, Joshua and Eric all have other commitments as well (which is perfectly fine). Still I think it would be very helpful to have an idea of how much time will the individual team members be able to dedicate to Factom. Could you please elaborate on that?
  • in a previous answer, Troy outlined some types of metrics that can be used to gauge performance in terms of outreach, networking, business development, etc. I think this is great, but what I think would be even more helpful is some concrete numbers. Would you be able to provide some estimates for the metrics you outlined? I am not looking for hard numbers, but something like: at least one potential client identified and an introduction with a relevant ANO was made, visited between M and N conferences, talked about Factom on at least N meetups, etc. As I mentioned previously, I really value your energy and dedication, but putting some more tangible numbers and focus behind those, would go a long way towards achieving greatness for the protocol :)
  • in a previous answer, Troy mentioned using DIDs and ZKP for "to provide for infinite range of metrics tracking and use cases while protecting identity and sensitive user data". Could you provide some more (very high-level) details about how you envision this working?
 
Thanks for the detail-oriented questions @Valentin Ganev. I appreciate everyone being clear about the need to zoom in. I’m seeing that sentiment in the grant applications as well.

We’re getting some good stuff together for you and @Nic R over the next few days. Bear with us. Josh has been on the road since Monday and I’m just getting my sleep schedule back on track after Holland.

Feel free to keep the questions coming!

As part of an ANO for which introductions have been made, I can speak on this. I have also had the chance to talk face to face with Damien for a couple dozen hours over a stretch of time he was in the bay area last month, and the days we were representing the protocol at the Odyssey hackathon. While face-to-face meetings are fairly rare in this ecosystem, they can be very telling about someone's character so I believe it could be useful for me to describe the full experience working with Damien doing promotion of the factom protocol.

I met damian in person when he had arranged a meeting with himself and I along with a member of government working on blockchain initiatives and an experienced corporate developer working in blockchain.

This was a very successful meeting. Damian was able to engage deeply with both the government official as well as the corporate developer. He was comfortable talking on an array of issues, and yet also knew the bounds of his expertise, and knew when to pull me in tactfully for certain technical pieces outside his expertise. He seemed to naturally understood the push and pull of the conversation between chatting, technical, vision, what we want, what they want, aligning interests, etc. This is hard to do going into a meeting nearly cold, and he did it comfortably. He has been networking around the work he is passionate about for a long time, and it shows that he is passionate about what Factom can bring to the world.

That meeting is leading to what looks like a potential useful long term relationship for the factom protocol.

From a broader view from the time I’ve spent with him, Damien seems to have large ambitions, a nuanced understanding of how movement building and utilizing technologies for good must live alongside our legal, technical, and for profit developments in this protocol, and believes there is room to close the gap between what is for profit and what is good.

Maybe most importantly, he has shown he can grind the work out. He was the only one who stayed on at the hackathon the full night to continue networking, and had a list of people for us to connect with when we got there the next morning, 1 of which is leading to a FAT POC on factom from an established company looking for alternatives to Ethereum, and the other is leading to a series of meetings lined up with a large tokenization initiative. I have only just begun to talk with Troy and dig into some of his research papers, but he seems equally as competent as Damien.

For full transparency: As mentioned, Damien set up and was part of the meeting I took part in. DBGrow will likely also fly Damien and/or Troy to the bay area soon to continue such meetings for factom promotion. DBGrow and its members currently have no direct business interests with Damien or the rest of MaxCollab, and all of our activity has been purely oriented toward promotion of FAT and the factom protocol. This may change in the future though if we explore potential business collaborations with MaxCollab, and I suggest other ANOs do the same if they have projects that overlap with MaxCollabs expertise.
 
Thank you for you application, MaxCollab!
  • in the team bios, you mention that Joshua was a university instructor in the past, and that he's been a speaker at different conferences and blockchain expos. Could you provide pointers to some of the talks, in case those were recorded?
Hi Valentin!

Thanks for the responses and questions regarding our ANO application. I do happen to have a few of my speaking engagements recorded! I’ll link you to a few different types so you can get a feel for my style covering different topics with varying levels of production and preparation.
  • This talk on Decentralized Marketplaces is from Blockchain Summit 2018. It’s an expansion of a similar talk I gave at Burning Man.

  • This is an impromptu interview on the SealCast, so here’s what I sound like when I’m on the spot.

  • I wrote, recorded, and edited this guitar tutorial, which shows my more scripted, educational presenting style, as well as some of my basic video production skills.

  • This last video is a Q&A about my performance on the soundtrack for Where the Water Tastes Like Wine. I start talking about 1:10 into the video.
Below, I’ll list some of my most recent speaking and teaching experiences.
  • Shoreline Game Audio Club: An Introductory Dive Into Game Audio
    • Shoreline College, Seattle, USA - April 18, 2019
  • Masters & Mentors Special Guest Instructor: Building Your Personal Brand
    • Shoreline College, Seattle, USA - April 4, 2019
  • Career Development Special Guest Instructor: Preparing for a Career In the Music & Audio Industries
    • Shoreline College, Seattle, USA - October 23, 2018
  • Seattle Startup Week: Blockchain Is Singing My Song - Using Blockchain In the Music & Entertainment Industries
    • Galvanize, Seattle, WA USA - October 10, 2018
  • Blockchain Summit 2018: Decentralized Marketplaces As A Global Equalizer
    • Mayflower Park Hotel, Seattle, WA, USA - September 24, 2018
  • Blockchain Seattle Conference: Blockchain for Social Good & Building the Future of Giving
    • Hyatt Regency, Bellevue, WA, USA - September 10-11, 2018
  • Burning Man 2018 - DECENTRAL Speaker Series: Peer to Peer All the Things! A Primer On Decentralized Marketplaces
    • Black Rock City, NV, USA - August 30, 2018
  • Many more, including PAX Dev, GE2, TechStars Startup Week, SIXR, and others.

Regarding my time as a university instructor, I taught a Philosophy of Technology course where we reviewed historical technological trends in an attempt to understand the value of current technological advancements and better predict the adjacent possible of current frontier tech. I also taught a Student Development course which focused on building good personal systems to ensure consistent results. I taught both of these courses while earning my M.Ed. at Oregon State University during the 2010-2011 academic year. (I don’t have those course curriculum anymore as they were a couple of hard drive crashes ago.) I’ve been a regular guest lecturer in Shoreline College’s Music Department the past three years, and I also teach occasional audio production courses to students in the Seattle School District, as well as in a summer audio program through Seattle Parks & Recreation.

Lastly, here’s a testimonial by Sue Ennis, an instructor in the Shoreline College music department where I’m frequently invited to speak.

“Joshua is a whirling force of nature who churns out positivity and kindness in his presentations. He’s an excellent, fluid speaker and connects deeply with an audience. His presentation transcended his topic when he shared bigger life lessons with the students. He talked about personal wellness, self-compassion, and the philosophy and psychology of freelancing and inspired us all. My students were riveted. He was by far our favorite guest of the quarter. Can’t wait to have him back next year.”

~Sue Ennis, President: The Recording Academy, PNW Chapter; Instructor: Shoreline College, Music & Business; Songwriter: Heart.

Let me know if this helps answer your question, Valentin!

Hi MaxCollab Team,
Generally speaking, in terms of MaxCollab's offerings, I think you have a strong vision and a clear philosophical message which I find unique in this ecosystem...
- What is the timeline for video production and podcasts?
Nic, I’ll be spending a lot of time over the next few days clarifying and elaborating on the podcast and videos we proposed in our application, per your questions. I’m still in the midst of traveling, but I’ll tag you when the responses to your questions are up.

Thanks!

"As part of an ANO for which introductions have been made”, I can also speak to this as well. Since Damo has been more publicly active in the Factom Community in the last 6 months. I’ve had several private communications and phone calls with him. His energy, motivation, bravery, professionalism, ways of interacting with people, and generally directing the overall conversation is/was something that was desperately lacking within the Factom ecosystem and served as the catalyst for me to reach out to him in the first place to thank him for his efforts and vision.

I’ve personally invited 12 crypto colleagues to Factom’s discord, after the slack transition. Unfortunately, all of them have left. This is some of their feedback:
“its too technical, if Im not a developer/programmer/coder I feel too intimidated to participate”
“Theres some big egos in there, not a very inviting space to interact”
“Great technology, but seems the community has technical tunnel vision”
Only bringing this up as IMHO, I see MaxCollab as being the perfect bridge from the technical aspects and nature of the community, and bringing understanding of that technology to a wide array of target audiences. They have a very diverse team with outstanding backgrounds.

Having worked with several of Damo’s team members on the grant application “Target Audience Explainer Videos”, I’ve been nothing but impressed on their professionalism in communication, ability to execute on ideas, promptness and preparation in regards to meetings, and overall they just have wonderfully exuberant passion to expand the message of the Factom Protocol.

Damo himself has shown his dedication to the protocol by running as a guide, being a moderator on the discord, applying for grants, attending and representing Factom at events, and applying as an ANO. I personally put more weight on companies/individuals that showcase this effort and background than say a company like Multicoin that has a great external reputation, but has done little to none for the Factom Protocol since being elected as an ANO (cant even reach them days after a test of the emergency response system...). I hope that once the market improves that Multicoin can deliver.

My point being, We have a group of motivated, talented, and diverse networks at the communities disposal through the ANO application of MaxCollab. I wish MaxCollab all the best and trust the community will see the value in adding you all to the ANO ecosystem. Thanks again for all your efforts and keep up the good work!

Thanks so much @Julian Fletcher-Taylor and @DanG! It’s been a pleasure working with you guys both so far, and everyone else I’ve had the chance to collab with. (There’s been a bunch!) I can’t tell you how exciting it is for me to finally have a team with which to execute much more substantive objectives or how happy I am to bring the resources I have at my disposal to all of our shared success.
 
@damo

As an ANO, will you continue to be an "ecosystem builder" via your personal twitter where you talk about using MDMA or will you only communicate via a more professional handle and leave the drug use out?

Screenshot 2019-04-30 at 8.45.26 PM.png


I personally could care less what you do within your own home and with your own money and I respect that drug reform is important to you. But when you become an official part of an ecosystem, especially one you plan to represent socially, I view this as a very real risk.

Thanks @David Chapman! We take very different stances on this.

First, we’re talking about my personal twitter account here.

[For Factom we will create a MaxCollab twitter handle to cover all company and business-related pr]

I don’t take stances on controversial topics lightly, though I always hold space for evolving on them. Especially when I step forward for a minority opinion. But I do frequently speak in (attempted) social media-ese to be accessible to the contemporary discourse of a given medium. And I’m as authentic about my experiences as I can bring myself to be bc I believe authenticity is one of our greatest needs at this time.

Meanwhile, have you seen the crazy (awesome?) things Elon Musk says? And he’s one of the most legendary industrialists of all time, not to mention the former CEO of Dogecoin.

Do I need to mention the president?

I am just not that controversial.

Second, while not a topic I would otherwise bring to this forum, on my personal twitter account MDMA is an issue worth talking about. Drug use in general is an issue worth talking about.

For instance, did you know a UN Blue Ribbon Commission including Kofi Annan and Sir Richard Branson called for the decriminalization of all drugs, globally? http://www.globalcommissionondrugs.org/

Did you know the FDA classified MDMA as a “breakthrough therapy” for PTSD and afforded it “fast track” status to get through clinical trials faster?
https://www.forbes.com/sites/janetw...erapy-for-post-traumatic-stress/#1afe247e7460

Did you know I struggle with anxiety and MDMA changed my life permanently for the better after one experience? (It’s ok that you didn’t)

Did you know a 2017 YouGov report shows “53% of all respondents support medical research into psychedelic drugs, and this number increases to 69% for respondents with graduate degrees.” https://today.yougov.com/topics/lif...3/americans-ready-embrace-psychedelic-therapy

So this topic isn’t very controversial either, and less so the further up you go in education - which is telling.

I want you to know, David, that even though we have wildly divergent styles, I actually, honestly, sincerely appreciate the due diligence you put into everything you do w Factom. I see you as the incredibly valuable asset to the ecosystem you are and I’m looking forward to collaborating more with you in the weeks and months ahead.

But I’m not going to apologize for being different. It’s who I am and I’m not ashamed of it. Times are changing. Culture is changing.

This, too, is an asset.

Thanks again, man.

I have no desire to influence people's personal lives. But if they don't separate the personal from business, then that needs to be part of my decision making process.

Meanwhile, have you seen the crazy (awesome?) things Elon Musk says? And he’s one of the most legendary industrialists of all time, not to mention the former CEO of Dogecoin.
Yes, including the times he got in serious trouble with the SEC and seriously affected the stock price of his companies.

I am just not that controversial.
In your opinion.

Second, while not a topic I would otherwise bring to this forum, on my personal twitter account MDMA is an issue worth talking about. Drug use in general is an issue worth talking about.
Not on this forum, it's not.

Please answer my question:

Sorry @David Chapman I just realized I added a clause to my response while you were probably drafting your reply.

[For Factom we will create a MaxCollab twitter handle to cover all company and business-related pr]
 
Looking at your post history, you edited in the following:

Screenshot 2019-05-07 at 4.20.45 PM.png


Your main selling point is as an "ecosystem builder". You don't hold an elected position that was determined by the consensus of the protocol that reflects upon us in an official manner. I have no issue with you saying what you do on your personal twitter. More power to you. But that changes if you're elected as an ANO.

I understand that you'll do business and PR for your company via your company handle. But will you as CEO (or whatever you call yourself) of MaxCollab be using your personal twitter to "build the ecosystem"?
 
Given that I speak and share often about blockchain on my personal twitter account, it’d be a conspicuous absence not to share news related to MaxCollab and Factom, or to interact with crypto twitter generally in that capacity.

If you’re suggesting I set up a separate account for my role as Chief Empowerment Officer of MaxCollab, it’s something I’d consider.
 
If you’re suggesting I set up a separate account for my role as Chief Empowerment Officer of MaxCollab, it’s something I’d consider.
It is. IF you can separate business and personal.

If I am going to vote for you, I would be royally pissed off to see the following on your personal or CEO Twitter account:

Tweet 11am: "Great talking with you at Blockchain for Government @BostonFed. Happy to help you and @ FactomInc close this important deal next week!"

Tweet 11:03 am: "Rolling, rolling, rolling. Love you all! Having flashbacks to Occupy Wallstreet! MDMA is the best".

You THINK we disagree only because I know how to separate business and personal.

Fight your good fight. Believe in what you want. But learn to separate business from personal if you want my vote.
