I am not just old.

I am really old.

Really, really old.

I am ancient.

You think I joke when I ramble on about my first failed startup that tried to countermeasures to sell dinosaurs for nemesis asteroids & meteorites.

I can, perhaps, on a good day, navigate a simple website, or even a page on a common equity crowdfunding site.

If I have the choice about spending time trying to find your company offering in your Twitter feed or instead spending that time actually reading and potentially writing about some other early-stage company that has made life (or at least reading) easy for a dinosaur like me, what do you think is going to happen?

Of course it could be even worse, you might ask me to download an app; but no one talking to a dinosaur like me would even suggest that, would they?

It’s the same game as people who are easy to introduce and people who know how to use email.

Don’t lose the game before you even sit down to play.

Russell has started three successful companies, one of which helped agencies of the federal government become very early adopters of open source software, long before that term was coined. His first project saved The American taxpayer 250 million dollars. In his work within federal agency, he was often called, “the arbiter of truth,” facilitating historically hostile groups and factions to effectively work together towards common goals
