A loser to me isn't a lonely, ugly, fat, depressed or depressing, talentless or unambitious person. A loser for me is a person who gave up trying, for whatever reason. As Wayne Gretzky said, you miss 100% of the shots you don't take. You clearly live in this self-referential delusional world where you're part of whatsoever elite, you are the most incredibly smart and cool and innovative and forward-thinking person anyone could hope to meet, a serial entrepreneur and millionaire who needs a bodyguard to protect him from being catcalled as he walks the streets of Britain.

As I said a few times before, the most damaging thing is not you coming to a niche forum like this one to scout for gullible people who could believe any part of your delusion, even just for a few minutes. The most damage you're inflicting is to yourself when you continue to live this imaginary lifestyle and do absolutely nothing to improve your real life. You will continue to move student furniture and save just about enough money for your next pilgrimage to the Temples of the Manosphere. You will continue to pick up vibes about futuristic technology from blogs and websites and pretend you're living them as a protagonist, when you probably don't even have the basic skills to set up a website, let alone write a Bayesian inference engine, let alone profit from it.

Your insults are placid water over my skin. Go on as you like, be the awesome superhero you are to yourself and a pathetic clown and mental case to everyone else. Remember these words: you are a loser precisely because all of your victories are played in your mind, and by refusing to play the reality game, you have a 100% chance to miss all your shots.


Yup, keep telling yourself that old man.

Sent this to my fundraising coordinator

Securing $300,000 for a project that is still in incubation (somewhat) seems reasonable to me. But I am also convinced that it can happen only if we pursue several lines of support at the same time. We'll need to review the project as a whole which I did just partially so far - to determine where the best funding elements may be, and then design strategies for each. They will complement each other, of course, and they should reinforce the success of each other, but they should still be differently focused

-- Crowdfunding

It is obviously imperative to have a strategy for using Cloud funding and community building. This includes coordinating messages and content of Twitter, Facebook, etc., and maximizing use of KickStart, Indiegogo, Crowdrise, etc. Some work will have to be done as to what is the best way to approach this. I already put together content, strategy outline, etc for a kickstarter page. I just need a video.


- Grants

I entered http://startupchile.org few months ago and received an email two days later saying out of 650+ startups vying for 100 slots, I won a 1-year visa plus $40,000 of equity-free seed capital. In fact, they loved the idea (digitizing Chile) so much, that the government wanted to offer a separate grant on top of the $40k. It's all part of open government initiatives around the world. However, I don't have time to be stuck in Chile right now until I'm good and ready :0

The Knight Foundation (http://www.knightfoundation.org/about), and http://www.omidyar.com/ are all about this kind of thing. But you gotta jump through all kinds of hoops and it takes a while. Which is why I'm looking to hire someone like you ;)

The links below are quick and dirty examples of some of the kinds of potential funders that may be interested in this project. Some are also sites with credibility that we can use to find other sources. This is just a taste

BACKGROUND INVESTOR SITES
• The Global Impact Investment Network (http://thegiin.org). This site is a demonstration of how the big dollar investors are trying to change the financial sector to appreciate social responsibility as a bottom line component

• Blending the Values of Charity and Profitability (http://blendedvalue.org): This site, done mostly by Jed Emerson, offers a good philosophical perspective. He is also well known and respected and tied to hands-on investors.

GOVERNMENT SITES:
Here are just a couple of government resource sites worth looking into for available funding. Applying for and getting government contracts can be more difficult than just about any other type of funding .. but it would be desirable.

US: http://portal.hud.gov/hudportal/HUD?src ... fa12/cnipg

UK: http://www.cdf.org.uk/content/funding-p ... /big-local
UK: http://www.communityfoundations.org.uk/

PRIVATE / CROSS-OVER SITES
These resources are private foundations that do community development grants, or something similar. These are likely to be part of what you want to go after WITH A TECHNOLOGY and community organizing/empowerment pitch. There are many more of these

http://sitemaker.umich.edu/tcaupresearc ... n_planning
http://www.grahamfoundation.org/grant_programs/
http://www.tascorp.org/content/opportun ... tail/2709/
http://www.macfound.org/programs/learning/strategy/

Oh, and besides going after IT grants, individual donors, etc. I came up with another idea to raise some money:

1. Talk to local governments about outsourcing their local info pages to a nonprofit for a few hundred a year-- at a savings! Every city ends up maintaining local info pages e.g http://www.elgintx.com)when what they really need is a town source subhub... As the Utah Transparency Project (http://www.govtech.com/policy-managemen ... nment.html) points out:

a) Local governments should establish a dedicated open government webpage, providing a searchable repository for all public information, accessible in three clicks or less.
b) Online information needs to be collected, generated and maintained in a digital form and made available on the open government webpage in a timely way.

There are over 270 local governments just in Utah. If we charge each one say 5k a year for a town subhub, that comes out to $1.2 million a year! 1.2 million x 50 states = $60 million/year

Marketing

http://codeforamerica.org/ might be good for building partnerships with local governments

I also think it would be a great idea to create a pitch on a funding platform like kickstarter and then have some postcards printed and handed out to local businesses, churches, etc with the project mission and pledge rewards on the back. Or maybe hold a festival type event celebrating local businesses and artists where vendors display and sell their goods (like a Framer's market). Also at the event could be presentations on the importance of supporting your community and information on how to get involved with TS. Artists tend to be very well connected within their communities, and reaching out to them could be mutually beneficial. Have you ever done anything like that before?

One of my other thoughts on moving forward is to connect with "think local" movements such as Think Local First, Slow Food, and Buy Local. These groups can provide a gateway to connecting with businesses who would be interested in using TS.

Summary

With all the above info and attached doc, you should be able to provide a grant business strategy outline or "game plan" for review. This should include the mission of TS. And the summary. It should be easy to read and clear like this: http://downtownproject.com/

Let me know!

The problem with professional bullcrappers like you is, once a liar, always a liar. You can't believe anything they say or do, regardless of whether it sound more or less legit. As far as I'm concerned you may have well applied for a grant from Chase, but, so what? Does that justify all the pompous statements about you being an elite, uber-smart and the fact you're looking down on everybody else on the basis of the round zilch you have proved to them (let alone to the wide world)?

Keep up with the "fake 'til you mate" mindset. It'll lead you nowhere, but that doesn't bother you when you've got so much BS to show off, right?

I don't understand HA: most people want PaloAltoGuy gone, but the few want him around--even though he is completely detrimental to the forum. He even posted photos of girls he claimed he slept with--of underage girls! How is Palo Alto Guy representing "free-speech?"

He would banned instantly in 99.9% of other forums, but not this one... :roll:

Nobody wants him around, people are just messing with him and playfulling going along with his bullshit in an obviously sarcastic tone. If you banned him right now, no one would bat an eye. Literally no one.

PAG has already been deemed to be a liar. Not that I want him banned but placing him in a "Trollville" like environment where he can post until his fingers fall off might be the perfect remedy.

Nah, he's shitting up other threads too with his copy-paste messages and images, gibberish and yelling. He adds literally ZERO to any discussions. I'm all in favor of banning him, rather then waiting for him to disappear. This forum is supposed to be all about freedom of speech but a good gardeners knows when to cut the rotten apples off. No reason to run it like it's some f***ing nanny state. I say we make a poll on whether or not to ban him, like we did with Cornfed before. People like PAG or Anatroll make me appreciate Cornfed more, because Cornfed at least made a few decent and insightful posts about modern culture. Even a broken clock hits the right time twice a day, but allowing a disruptive troll to mess up a forum has nothing to do with "free speech".

I disproved all of your slanderous drivel with proof you repugnant ape. You're obsessed with me because my life has a purpose to it, unlike your shambles of a life in a miserable retirement home for unsightly failures :) Therefore, you CERTAINLY aren't my peer. By being judgmental and elitist, I will bring the best out of humanity and lead the world into a new era of peace, love, and prosperity. As for those who wallow in negativity, and aren't willing to abandon their loathsome traits, they will be left behind, and isolated from the rest of mankind, so that their lies can't contaminate our purity. SO of course this means endgame for you.

Lol, this world is for the rich and powerful. A healthy society does not exist for its own sake, but exists for the sake of higher types. That's why internet forums are gathering grounds for basement losers. Finally, a place where you're accepted :lol:

No body gives a shit what you think lol. You're just an anonymous spectator projecting your passivity and non-action on men of action like me. You're the basement loser here not me.

I say we have ourselves a little vote about this guy, because this bullshit has gone on long enough now. Let's hear what the community says and have a poll about it, like we did with Cornfed a while back:

Camden NJ? Lol now I know for a fact that you are full of shit, because I am currently on the other side of the globe. Obviously you have zero computer skills and no way of knowing what my IP adress is. Not even by a long shot. Nice try, though. If you know my IP adress, then tell me the numbers.
