What if Rihanna were Prime Minister?

Submitted by PUDRYR

What Makes a Prime Minister.png

Some weeks ago, the ole man noted a comment from Mr. William Skinner, a fellow blogger where, while he spoke of breaking the deleterious chains of this BDLP Duopoly, he suggested the possible advancing of Rihanna Fenty as Prime Minister.

The ole man has been examining his suggestion anew in the light our serious need for “New Blood” perspective and the necessity to break this rut that our country has descended into.

We have no national inspiration nor any desire, like Rihanna, for Bajans to aspire to be “A Credit to their nation Wherever We May GO.”

I humbly suggest to you readers that what we need is a radical disruption and departure from this path of useless incompetents and a need to have ALL of our people embrace real change.

And I humbly suggest that this change WILL BE FOUND in Rihanna.

Many people (of whom the Honourable Blogmaster numbers high in this list), are quick to say that “Mia Mottley is a millionaire” as if this is some superlative qualification.

But the ole man, would ask those of you, who will read this submission, (INCLUDING RIHANNA?) to contemplate the instructive Cassius/Brutus comments  (Act I Scene 2)

Brutus and Caesar—what should be in that “Caesar”? “Rihanna and Mia” —what should be in that “Mia”?

Why should that name be sounded more than yours?

Write them together, yours is as fair a name. Sound them, it doth become the mouth as well.

Weigh them, it is as heavy. Conjure with ’em, “Brutus” will start a spirit as soon as “Caesar.” And Rihanna will start a spirit as soon as Mia.”

Now in the names of all the gods at once, Upon what meat doth this our Mia feed, That she is grown so great?

Age, thou art shamed! Barbados, thou hast lost the breed of noble bloods!

When went there by an age, since the great Errol Barrow, But BIM was famed with more than with one (wo)man?

When could they say till now, that talked of BIM, That BIM’s wide walks encompassed but one (wo)man?

Rihanna Fenty is a millionairess too”, many times more that Mia Mottley (at least what Mia’s official declaration states heheheheh)

Mia is said to be able to speak without a paper, AND, as an actress, so can Rihanna.

Mia has 26 ministers around her running the finances of Barbados – a $1.5 billion indebted country, OF WHOM 21 MINISTERS ARE IDIOTS!!

Rihanna is part of a MULTIBILLION DOLLAR empire AND IS SURROUNDED BY, & HAS ACCESS TO OVER 1,000 FINANCIAL EXPERTS, people whose performance validation contracts don’t permit them to tinker with finances, THEY GET THE JOB RIGHT, EVERY TIME, or they get fired. FULLSTOP

Do you Bajans who truly want change, understand this?

Examine the PROVEN OPTIONS we have right here in our Ambassador Plenipotentiary Rihanna Fenty!!

Like William Skinner, I am doubtful that WE CAN MAKE THESE BDLP CLOWNS straighten up, and fly right, but I wish encourage average bajans, people WHO DOES NOT FEEL like you are a part of the MOTTLEY solution – we have A VIABLE SUCCESSFUL ALTERNATIVE – FENTY FOR 2023!!!

    Other than on this blog we have never met.

    So there is no likelihood of coaching.

    What did you mean when you said

    “… Rihanna can also move to create “multiple Rihanna’s” .. through giving them the exposure…”

    Would you be limiting you comment solely to music or info other sectors?

    If the latter AND I DO HOPE IT IS THE LATTER, would you share how you see that working?

    You spoke fleetingly of the St Lucia Jazz Festival and hinted at some type of misappropriation

    With that experience under your belt would you care to share with us here in the classroom, not what happened since such detail might expose your identity and the players, but what you would do differently if you had to do it again.

    And enduringly what others, with similar ideas, should do in similar circumstances

    I want you to give the uninitiated here an idea of the dangers surrounding ideas and promoting similar concepts Nineofnine

    @ Mr William Skinner

    William,YoYou sent me reading about the Beatles.

    I learnt a few things about these fellows from Liverpool and I also learnt that they weren’t the writers of their original music AND THAT THEY CHANGED BRITIAN AND THE IMAGE THE WORLD HAD OF A post world war II England

    I read about 6 articles and while that is not really exhaustive reading of a topic I sought to get a sense of what you were saying with that specific reference to the Beatles.

    And what the ole man gleans is as follows.

    They brought a musical revolution to the United Kingdom at a time when the UK was an island looking inward after the war.

    They led what was dubbed the British Invasion.

    But what is most important to me is the effect that they had on the UK youth!

    So let me try to assimilate all this with regard to miss Rihanna Fenty.

    The fact that she enjoys global success and appeal while not at her zenith and not Beatle cult like is in itself an explosion.

    How can such be made into an invasion? And for that the ole man has the answer.

    And most importantly how can this parlay into galvanizing our youth.

    And for that de ole man has de answer.

    Forgive me William if I do not provide that answer here.

    You see those 4,000 views for the Specific Stoopid Cartoons that accompany this Fenty for 2023 campaign, those indicate a thirst that is being fed here on BU.

    You must not doubt that you will begin to hear Minister Oblong Head Kerrie talking bout a new Club Rihanna card soon BUT OTHERS ADE WATCHING.

    All of the credit card companies have been alerted to this product and are courting Pan Caribbean celebrities.

    BUT THEY DO NOT HAVE THE SECRET SAUCE

    They dont know what will make our Rihanna like the Beatles Revolution so de ole man cant put that here can he?

    The problem William is dat de got people without vision driving the engines of economic growth which is a V12 engine but Mia Mugabe got men and women who born in the day of throwing coal into the burners.

    I was going to use the imagery of short dogg*e menses incapable of stimulating the clitoruses of their partners but then I remembered the biting or clitoruses as well as the fact that ammmm we in Bulbados so that imagery would not have been politically correct…

    So let us stick with the coal driven engines of dem iron horse movies.

    Undoubtedly de ole man envisions that the new PM Fenty will shake up the local landscape like nothing we bajans have see before

    We need our equivalent to Rose’s, but of a type that WILL NOT WITHER

    And those de ole man has…

    RiRi can move to create “multiple Rihannas” through both Music and OTHER career opportunities

    MUSIC /ENTERTAINMENT

    That is, she has travelled the road of success, knowing the channels, connections and requirements and can replicate that by MENTORSHIP to aspirants whether be it through establishing some digital mechanism, finance facility, scholarships or establishing a program within UWI or a acadamy/school to achieve the objectives.

    Mention should be given to what facilitated the popularity and phenomenal rise of legendary iconic artistes of all time which was entirely due not only to their skills and talents but by the development of TELECOMMUNICATIONS and NETWORKS.

    Mr. Skinner referenced the Beatles.. that came about with the advent of RADIO with the world in a stressful chaotic state of war that robbed the soul essence of JOY, sought recourse and relief from listening to music on the radio.

    Next came the advent of TELEVISE BROADCASTING that persons like Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, Page, and Jagger etc. capitalize on, making an indelible mark on the pages of history.

    In the current timeline, the advent DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY in telecommunications catapulted coverage of the space, enhancing greater popularity and exposure with ease of access to the space. Rihanna is the current holder of the tech development space.

    A case of being in the right place at the right time of technological advancements.

    OTHER SECTORS.

    Any principle, once known can be applied to any structure.
    Lets look at the “BLUE ECONOMY”. Surely, when the term was dropped, many eyebrows were raised in suspense.

    Question is…How can the principles of the Rihanna experience (channels, connections, requirements) be applied?

    Question: What is in our territorial waters besides fish, fossil fuels, plant life that can be “mined”, is eco-friendly, productible, sustainable and profitable? The answer to that question is ENERGY.

    The CHANNELS of water energy are found in wave, currents and tidal actions.
    Can they be mined?..
    YES.

    The CONNECTIONS to harnessing water energy is found in physics, as defined…it is the science of matter and energy and of interactions between the two, grouped in traditional fields such as water acoustics , mechanics, thermodynamics, and electromagnetism, as well as in modern extensions including atomic and nuclear physics, cryogenics, solid-state physics, particle physics, and plasma physics or further defined by physical properties, interactions, processes, or laws that are basically, the study of the natural or material world and the principles governing it.

    Wave Action provides a directional flow of water energy, one way)
    Current Action provides a directional flow of water energy, multiple ways )
    Tidal Action provides a push and pull or rising and falling of water energy, two ways)…Are you with me still?

    The REQUIREMENTS to harness this energy lies in the capacity of designers engaging specialists in the fields mentioned in CONNECTIONS (geo-engineers, marine biologists, physicists, mechanics etc. etc. ) to design a mechanism to basically use water to drive engines that produce energy.

    Pushing for a green economy, fossil fuels will be challenged … and we ahead of the curve in Energy.
    Does UWI offer the tools for development?
    The whole Atlantic pushes its energy at us, what are we waiting for?

    The Principle can be applied to any sector.
    ahhh…Should I copyright?

    I see

    In your response you gave a comprehensive scope of the real and present possibilities which were pleasingly exhaustive.

    You teasingly said “should you copyright”?

    For some of these initiatives it would be best to secure patents and for others, copyright and some both.

    Which brings de old man to ask you further 6 questions?

    1.How much does either of these processes, copyright and patent cost, who would be engaged to do it, and where would they be conducted?

    2.Where would the money come from to effect the aforementioned processes for the country’s creatives?

    3.Who mindful of these costs, should such a portfolio of IP assets belong to?

    4.What is the gestation period for any one of these potential IP assets?

    5.Who will fund the R&D aspect and proof of concept? for any given asset, a few of which, given your scope, being digital?

    6.Who will find the manufacture of the physical solutions?

    You can see that my question PRODUCE a timeline for any part of your spectrum of assets AND IMMEDIATELY PUTS YOU ON THE PROVERBIAL BACK FOOT for immediate realizables, and medium and long term products does it not?

    I look forward to your response

  • Valid points on the time frames for legal inputs, patent application and processing not to mention fees both singular and recurring.. a lengthy and can be tedious task indeed.

    The US Patent Office is the primary department for acquiring patents.
    All creatives need be incorporated in the application as holders of ownership unless otherwise negotiated. There have been evidence of players eliminating co-owners for spoil, meaning, stipulations and proceeds surrounding ownership and beneficiaries be accounted for and stated.

    Patent ownership has a yearly renewable cost attached. One holds responsibility if its a personal asset, likewise, other corporate entities etc. are responsible for their asset/s. Cost can be in excess of US$15000.+ depending on the scope and structure of the patent.

    Sourcing funds comes under ones/corporate/Government responsibility, Legal matters facilitate the structure of arrangements, standard legal costs apply unless declared by special patent lawyer.

    Time frames for processing can take months to years in some cases as well as “inaction” due to the “declared” nature of “relevance or non-relevance” or threat to the establishment/norms or for the retention of monopolies.

    You asked..
    Where would the money come from to effect the aforementioned processes for the country’s creatives?

    Zooming in on the “country’s creatives”, suffice to say, any submission of ideas to ones’ country/government, if accepted should offer to buy that idea from the creative or if a patent will be sought for the idea, the Government should (as they are/will be the beneficiary of the idea) fund the process and include the creative as co-applicant, who should likewise be rewarded for his efforts throughout his lifetime and benefit further by extension to his family throughout their generations as long as the idea remains in full operation or until it ceases such… all stipulated in legal grammar and registered accordingly.

    The recipient for the CARIFESTA LOGO received $20 000 for that winning design, but did they legally made bond to the royalties aspect? Surely it would have worth more.

    Thank you for the links to this information, both the granson and de ole man will read this information avidly, presently.

    So it would appear that what you are suggesting is a public/private sector collaboration between government and the creative community which anticipates government taking a position in a concept OK.

    Just for the sake of hypothesis let de ole man give you an idea which, though its constituent parts do exist, has not been patented in this format TO DATE

    You may well ask why de ole man would give out the concept so freely knowing that others are looking on here but to that de ole man would answer “for everything there is a time and season…a time to build up and a time to cast down…” a time to live and a time to die so..

    Building in first world countries are huge structures where finding a room can be a serious challenge.

    What if de ole man were to develop a credit card sized offering which would assist in being a beacon for rooms in the building.

    Now do not tell me that GPS does this type of waypoint provisioning, IT DOES NOT because of “planar considerations”

    So i come to a building, perhaps one with security, and i swipe my Hermes Card

    Hermes is the god for travellers, the fellow with the winged boots and it (a) identifies me (b) confirms my destination (c) and provides exact waypoint data for me to navigate the building with directional data and in the case of emergencies provides Rapid destination point data.

    THAT THOUGHT IS IN THE ETHER AND CANNOT BE RECALLED

    But here is the thing about that idea that i want you to consider.

    Who should I go to with that idea? BIDC, EGFL, YES or Eugene Barriteau at the UWI?

    THe first issue is that there is no non disclosure document that protects that idea.

    Then secondly there is no officer at any of those entities who can evaluate the concept and its applicability in buildings or in Refuge camps for persons who need to navigate in makeshift camps to find services or find people.

    Are you with me Nine of Nine?

    Then what happens with the patenting of that idea? When is it done?

    How to I reduce the product to practice? who funds the microcircuitry and the software and the security for that software and the mass manufacturing? And the products marketing?

    Are you with me still?

    This is one of the reasons that de ole man would look for a Rihanna Fenty to underwrite that concept from its cradle to the marketplace

    BECAUSE SHE HAS THE CONNECTIVITY, MIA DOES NOT!

    Most people who come here and read think that de ole man is anti Mia Mugabe Mottley.

    They faill to understand that Mia is not the target of my blogs here, she is a facilitator THE BIGGGER PICTURE IS FOR BARBADOS & Bajans producing products and technology outside of the “bolts for Suzuki Car wheels” that i mentioned elsewhere

    So here is that product already “produced” in de ole man’s head

    and here it is mass produced and branded for any company as the Hermes Internal Directory Service

    Do you even start to understand how absolutely out of my fvcking depth one feels when surrounded by the Jackasses that abound in Barbados Nine of Nine?

    With buhkvunts like Sandra Wives and Lynette Holdim and Rawdone proposing shite solutions?

    And do you know how many thousand of Bajans that are even brighter dan de ole man but are being trottled by these succession of badwords too unmentionable to put here cause de Honourable Blogmaster going ban my scvunt?

    Steupseee.

    This is not a unique then since we have Microsoft buying GitHub for $7.5 billion:

    Or Salesforce buying API platform MuleSoft for $6.5 billion so legacy systems that can’t push their data to the cloud using MuleSoft can unlock their data.

    But let me not restrict this to IT, we have students and teachers and laypersons and civil servants with ideas that are revolutionary BUT THEY FEAR interacting with these arrogant ministers and the illy designed IDEAS4BARBADOS website Which offers no protection for one’s ideas.

    THe thing that is beseiging the Mugabe regime rather administration is one single thing TRUST!

    The People of barbados DO NOT TRUST THEM because of all the trickery that they are effecting.

    Mia does not know how to inspire trust among her following SHE IS RULING BY FEAR.

    If there can be a strategic co-option of expertise that will permit key line agencies to thrive and to create employment and generate FOREX and these can be seen to be the promotion of Public Private Sector Partnerships WHERE PROVIDERS ARE COMPENSATED FAIRLY, all of the other deceit and plotting to keep people from dissenting with her ragamuffins would fade into insignificance.

    By suggesting a public/private sector collaboration between government and the creative community only when Government is the benefactor of the idea, but those ideas that are privately owned, financing is their responsibility for development.

    HERMES is a must, it’s a brilliant idea, it is a private creative so no need to involve any of those entities, in fact the blantant theft of mine came out of the UWI.
    The components of HERMES card would also include it’s own swipe device (programmed according to building specs and card recognition) and mobile App. to receive and display data…..
    Besides RiRi as an option, maybe VENTURE ÇAPITAL or a benefactor or launching a Go Fund Me or IPO (initial public offering), to avoid loan capital as much as possible but rather seek out investment capital

    Once adequate funds are available, pay as you go for services and development …. retain sole ownership of the patent, down the line you can sell it.

    This concept is huge, to have every high rise commercial and rental property out fitted with the swipe device with a universal card with an App is MEGA.. Hope you really pull this off..

    The latter nurtures creativity and innovation, Barbados’ kills it.

    First world countries have, and vigourously enforce, Intellectual Property laws, Barbados has none and has no intention of pursuing any IP protection either

    Take a look at Ideas4Barbados and see some of the brilliant suggestions there then look at the comments of one of the lead directors of Innovation and Invention who says and I quote

    ‘…MIST ( Ministry of Innovation, Science and Smart Technology) is in the process of examining an appropriate structure to address issues you raise and others.

    You may also be aware that the Prime Minister mentioned that the government will hire a technology consultant as an adviser. That individual will be expected to assist in addressing some of these issues with respect to governance and infrastructure and others…”

    So here we are 6 months into the honeymoon for this BLP administration and we have a government that has fast tracked RAWDONE ADAMS by creating a Sandbox specifically for him and the Central Prank of Barbados.

    Yet to hire a consultant, WHOM BY THE WAY THE IDB CAN EASILY SOURCE under its EICF funding, is proving to be a hurdle of insurmountable proportions.

    you said and i quote your 6.43 a.m remark “…By suggesting a public/private sector collaboration between government and the creative community only when Government is the benefactor of the idea, but those ideas that are privately owned, financing is their responsibility for development…”

    Let me seek to modify your statement.

    It is accepted that rearranging the chairs on the deck of the Sinking SS Barbados by all these fancy shennanigans like MORE TAXES, and raising MP salaries, and SANDBOXING Rawdone is as futile as rearrangements

    The fact is that only diversification and meaningful diversification is going to save the day.

    People borning every day so our import needs, barring growing our own food, and either growing cotton and making all our clothes, and having a utopian import substitution plan ENT GOING WORK!!

    So we have to “create” something which is needed by global consumers

    Again let us default to the HERMES Compass to explain and adjust your comment

    GOVERNMENT ENT GOT NO IDEAS and the AUTHOR OF THE INNOVATION(s) ent got no money

    So the construct is that a PPP aroung hermes would (i) create a contract between HERMES’ author and the GOB which would (ii) for a defined shareholding (iii) secure requisite financian from the GoB for product patent/copyright prosecutions, and the entire cycle of to-market-deliverable associated with commercializing HERMES premise for which (iv) the author of Hermes would be compensated AS WELL AS GOVERNMENT.

    I do not understand what you mean by “an idea that is privately owned” since we are discussing a PPP which in this case in a government facilitating the Ideas, Innovation and Creativity of its citizenry and taking a position in the ensuing ROI.

    The model being floated in “a hybrid of Venture Capitalism” with government holding the seed IP portfolio.

    The reason that it is being floated is because all the posturers like Basil with his cant about “projects with the DNA of an elephant” wasting $1 million in EZ Cricket and Jeremy Stephens consultancies, and Boos and “Barbados being the entrepreneurial hub of the Caribbean”, and the whole bunch of talk giants who stroke our collective doggi#s in public but do not get arrested for public masturbation and acts against the state, HAS TO BE DISRUPTED and we got to mek money

    You feeling me?

    I do not understand what you mean by “an idea that is privately owned”

    What is conveyed in the comment is this..

    One has an idea which solely benefits the system of governance as describe above built on those terms.
    Per example.. Government facilitates the idea which nineofnine has conceptualized and has entered contract with benefits from the construction of a offshore marine infrastructure that generates energy from tidal, wave and current action which then is supplied to the grid. GOVERNMENT HOLDS THE PATENT WHICH nineofnine (SHARES) benefits from as creator.

    An idea that is privately owned PATENT is one (per example) refers to an idea which nineofnine has conceptualized without any FINANCIAL benefit to any OTHER party. The idea develops into a device that diagnoses medical conditions using sound and color, identifies deficiencies, local and treatment, comes with an App to monitor and prescribe rehabilitation treatments based on physics and not chemicals. NINEOFNINE HOLDS THE PRIVATE PATENT.

    So we arrive back where we began.

    The dearth of innovation and Creativity and the need to have a Leader, ably assisted by competent people, whose collective DNA is capable of, and disposed to, nurturing such a national program.

    The entire structure from copyright, patenting through R&D to commensurate manufacturing to facilitate even the prototyping of said pertinent cutting edge technology, IS ABSENT FROM OUR COUNTRY!!

    IN FACT, IT IS ABSENT FROM OUT PSYCHE!!

    The problem with the first state is fixable , over the course of time, which we dont have much of, but the problem of the second, IS INSURMOUNTABLE, UNLESS YOU CHANGE THE FACILITATORS

    There is no other way.

    By your comments you clearly acknowledge two things

    (1) facilitating meaningful innovation (WHICH ITSELF IS A HURDLE BECAUSE THE PEOPLE WHO CAN IDENTIFY SUCH ENT DERE) and then safeguarding that innovation takes money which Barbados does not have AND

    (2) MORE CRITICAL TO THIS CONSTRUCT, the gestation period for said Innovation to generate revenues has to be consistent with the immediate needs of the country ELSE WE ARE JUST BLOWING AIR UP EACH OTHERS DERRIERE

    We dont have 10 to 15 years to find the cure for diabetes or obesity, we need something now.

    For the short term, seeing the Government’s cry whether fake or real, the next best option if the creative is in a similar boat is to seek out a relevant entity which the idea can benefit, who is willing either or both to compensate one for the idea or share in patent ownership as well as giving full blindza (financial) support. Many a company would be willing to invest, say US$500 000 toward a ROI of millions, all it takes is a well layed out and convincing proposal.. for huge profit margins.

    Apologies Nineofnine

    One day for the Creator is not enough but one tries.

    Let me answer one item at a time.

    Familiarity.

    It is NOT THAT MEN LIKE SIR KYFFIN ARE NOT WILLING TO INVEST in these new age things Nineofnine

    Let me explain the construct and the challenge.

    A simple example will suffice here.

    You might be too young to remember Dick Tracy comics but that old cartoon presaged the coming of the two way wrist radio and video calling on a wrist phone by 50 something years.

    If either of us had approached Sir Kyffin 20 years ago with that blueprint for the Apple iPhone he, and similar multimillionaires in Barbados will tell you to go and see their “go-to” advisor for that person to make the recommendation because he may tell you, I dont know about your fandangled concept and need to be guided.

    Invariably, the go to man DOES NOT KNOW EITHER so he, being tasked with the responsibility and care of Kyffin ‘s money, errs, and rightfully so, on the side of caution, and advises Sir Kyffin NOT TO INVEST.

    This is not speculation, this is fact!

    Our INNOVATION EXPERIENCE is lacking NOT BECAUSE OF SPITE, but because of familiarity!

    There are a few issues here that you have yet to propose real solutions for a pragmatic matrix to work.

    The first is this

    There are very few intermediaries in whom Simpson, or Rihanna, or COW or Melznick or Hall or Hinds, being unfamiliar with the Innovation thrust, can reside their trust.

    For the most part, we are dealing with venture capitalists funding and, in the context of bajans, these are self made millionaires who have been to the bottom of the grinder and back, and are cautious with their hard earned money.

    Let me repeat again thd previous point about the comfort zones of men in real estate and construction and oil and whatever else, and here you are pushing an intangible which may take years to gestate.

    Some of us can spot an Innovation immediately BUT THAT DOES NOT AFFECT GESTATION TIME.

    We need to find men and women with congruent national interest and that predisposition to invest in what DOES NOT EXIST.

    THESE MUST BE provided with honest competent intermediaries to guide these persons in their choices

    It, the investment, has to be concise, it cannot fail, else it would have tainted such an important national initiative for sometime to come.

    The reason that I would have put the HERMES COMPASS OUT THERE is a statement to say the following

    I KNOW there are hundred of bajans out and about who are wayyyyyy brighter that de ole man, but who need the environment and Resources to contribute to out national growth.

    I have seen them and talked to a few of them but our current structures WILL NEVER PERMIT THEIR GROWTH!

    There has to be a buffer zone between the resources and the potential assets, one which understands the objectives of Both Sides and which will unerringly give equity to our investors and our creatives.

    And de ole man ent saying dag cause it sound pretty, cause dere is some of the investors who are rapists and some of the creatives who are con men, EVEN SENATORS.

    BU has some blogs that only few people blog there, but that does not mean they are not read by people who genuinely want to make a difference.

    What I believe will happen is that the trusted people and the competent people and the men and women of integrity like The Jeff Cumberbatches and the Brenda Pope’s, men and women who are respecte, will take the mantle BECAUSE THEY HAVE THE GRAVITAS AND SKILLS REQUIRED to develop the required Arthurian “round table”

    Resonance is the reason soldiers break cscence on bridges therefore, if the artificial achievement of the requisite amplitude of a bridge can achieve such an effect, then, mindful of the effect of the Mani Mantra, and the Words of My Christ “Lazarus come forth” de old man HAS TO CONCUR WITH YOUR IMPUTED concept and cure.

  • The gestation period is one that comes with the territory, many great inventions took years, so depending on the application and complexity, there is not avoidance of that.

    A BUFFER facility to bridge investor and creator makes sense, seeing that these “middlemen” basically controls the process, and with the absence of strong legal framework and (real) financial structures…. ’cause $5000. cant even pay legal fees for IP protection nowhere, there is a gigantic need to get things up and rolling.

    The only other thing outside of venture capital is the search for an International ANGEL INVESTOR/S or go the route of using a CROWDFUNDING PLATFORM, other than these options is to engage an IPO for the project which also encompasses a lengthy gestation period.

    The Su Su as you rightly described, really can’t suffice because of numbers and pool, that in the event you need further capital, you’ll be out to sea until your turn comes around.

    A time frame is set to the lengthiest process of the project.
    A WORKING APP is set up to allow players to communicate in real time.
    The project is departmentalized and given an equal or lesser time frame to complete component tasks.
    Each sector of departmentalization is further segmented, following a reduced timeframe to meet primary timeframe.

    At completion, tasks are assessed and readied for presentation.

    Can you ascertain allegiances to your patent by a phone call?

    What do you send to that party that will qualify you to be worthy of assistance, IF YOU QUALIFY, for such assistance?

    Are you saying that, our Embassies should be staffed with persons of dual citizenship from the countries that host our embassies, so that they can MAKE REPRESNTATION (as a citizen) on behalf of our home-base citizens who need such help and services for, lets say, patents and services that are both patent and manufacturing/production related?
    It may also have to take the route of formulating some treatise of sorts with the host country.

    That being the case, Embassies, Ambassadors/Consulates mandate and job description must also be modified, which may take you back to Constitutional inclusion, adjustments and legally required structures.

    Nevertheless, your posit is worth its weight in gold.

    You referenced…”But these persons become the bonafide conduits to access those US resources.”….

    In this vein, do you mean that the Embassies can identify and offer invitation to these conduits to “pool their resources” under a legal body to effect needs of home country citizens using the Embassy as an oversight body?
    THATS WORKABLE.

    Once under the legal protection, docs are forwarded to Embassy (for registration purposes) which forwards them to the MicroConduit body (with facility to communicate with directly with inventor/creator). and backwards via the same route.
    STILL WORKABLE.

    The late Hardcourt Lewis and Branford Taitt always emphasized to me never work solo with Government, always two or more is recognized and copy works across different multiple ministries. It was a heads up admonition.

    I doubt if with dual nationality an ambassador person can claim diplomatic immunity if they are a citizen of the country they are in. And we have to be careful of where their allegiance lies.
