and am trying to create symbiotic relationships with people and organizations in New York who have similar initiatives / objectives,
who may be strong on business, political networking and other skills, but could use a spare tech visionary and guru.
My primary entrepreneurial focus now is evolving Blackfacts.com, which I stood up in 1997 as a technology awareness project,
into a profitable small business that will become the leading source of Black History information on the internet and through various devices.
Blackfacts is the first step of a larger technology platform my partner Dale Dowdie and I call the Wakanda Technology Initiative™,
which seeks to do nothing less than establish an online platform of software services that will power black organizations and businesses
across the nation with current leading technologies at affordable costs and with no on-staff nerds required.
(In general I don't play games, but when I do, the only game I play is called 'Changing the Game.')
If you want more information regarding our roadmap for the Wakanda Technology Initiative concept, please contact Dale at
email@example.com but give a little time for a response, as right now, we are feverishly working on
getting Blackfacts ready for Black History Month 2020 with a slew of new features!
And if you are in the New York City area, I am also interested in learning about local community technology initiatives that might be a good fit for my vision
and skill set, although my ability to participate at any meaningful level will be limited until after Black History Month 2020.
On another note, we also are looking to collaborate on several venture ideas that we secured domain names for back in the 90s but have not found the right partners for,
including urbancommunities.com, blackgreeksingles.com and what we expect to be the leading black-oriented social networking
site in the future, blackpeople.com (Yup, we own that name).
So thanks for taking the time to read this, hopefully it gives you a clear idea of where we have come from and where we are headed,
and if you think you are able to help grease the wheels of progress of this vision, I would love to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org.
And if you aren't sure of any way you can help, just share the site with anyone you think would be interested, and you will have helped more than you know.
Sharing will increase public awareness of Blackfacts, and public awareness is, at the end of the day, the one thing that will give Blackfacts
the potential of being the revolutionary tech application that we are working to make it.
When you know that you stand on the shoulders of giants,
It is easier to see yourself from a higher place.
Finally, Blackfacts.com is dedicated to my childhood Black Studies teacher Mrs. Jacquelyn Lee,
who planted the seed of curiousity about my history in my mind a long forty years ago.
