I was priveleged to speak at the first Utah County Business Ignitor
series today put on by Connect Magazine, with Sponsors WSGR, 10x
Marketing, and Tucanos. I think there were 60-80 people there,
including lots of the Junto Partners from the 2005 group, and a lot of
good networking was going on.
It’s always fun to talk about changing the world through
entrepreneurship, and guaranteeing success by "approaching omniscience"
through gaining knowledge from books and from others through constant
networking and learning.
But what will make this event most memorable to me was the very
interesting and poetic introduction that Mark Bonham made of me. I
Creative, but not slick
Gadgets, but not gimmicks.
Technology, but not trash.
Analysis, but not paralysis
CEO, but not "See ME go"
Information, but not overload
Ideas, but not without ideals
Startups, but not stirrups
Websites, but not web-frights
Infobase Ventures, but not Vulcan Ventures
Numbers, but not without people
Marketing, but not maddening
Boyish looks, but manic ideas
Blogs, but not clogs
Energy, but not anarchy
Books, but not bookish
Innovation, but not annihilation
Happy, but not giddy
prosperous, but not wealthy
forceful, but not demanding
MyFamily.com, but not to forget "my family" at home

Mark, don’t sue me for posting this without your permission. But please
accept my very sincere thanks for your kindness and thoughtfulness.
This is really very touching. How lucky I am to have a poetic attorney
