Good news on multiple fronts
CILA CPO Interview
Last week I met with the Chief Product Officer of CILA. He loves Mass Address. He did express some concerns regarding market adoption but believes we can overcome them. He asked me to send him a document explaining how the tech stack operates. You see, the CPO’s job is to take nontechnical explanations and turn them into technical verbiage for the programmer to execute into code. The programmer then tells the CPO if the technology will work or not. He is essentially a software developer.
I already know the technology will work. The question remains if CILA wants to invest the time and talent it will take to bring American’s control of their identities. The biggest threat here is not technology. It is the Big 5 getting word of what we are doing. If the Big 5 hear about what we are doing, they could request what we bikers like to call a “sitdown”. A sitdown is where the dominant motorcycle club basically meets with the smaller motorcycle club and tells them to comply with their demands. This request is usually accompanied by a very large sum of cash or a beat down.
Ask yourself, would you turn down $5-10 billion dollars? Most people would say, “Hell no!” That’s where you and I differ. You see this is bigger than you realize. This is national security stuff. No dollar value can be equated to National Security. The Big 5 doesn’t compete with smaller tech companies. They don’t have to. They simply buy them out. Once we are operational and start getting market adoption, the big money offers will come. They always do. Yahoo offered over $1 billion to Mark Zuckerburg for Facebook.
I joined the US Air Force to help people. I didn’t do it for patriotic reasons. Since my war days are over, I am turning to Mass Address to continue my service to America. Instead of defending the constitution with my rifle, I will defend it with my keyboard. I would only consider selling Mass Address if the platform is fully operational and is being used by the American people. It is my life’s work. I do not want it bought simply to be put aside so corporations can continue their dirty deeds of selling identities.
In a more personal news update, I was offered a full-time management position with a major corporation. I made sure before accepting this role that Mass Address development would not be affected. It’s literally in signed legal documentation. In case you didn’t know, most Entrepreneurs have to hold down a full-time job until their startup gets funded.
The Federal Trade Commission also contacted me. They want me to send a presentation regarding Mass Address for their upcoming Privacycon 2021.
Should I submit my presentation or wait to find out what CILA is going to do?
