This trip we secured solid marketing partnerships.  I wouldn't expect anything visible for a few months.   

These guys have proven track records and will get us where we need to go.   

Brian's talent is finding the best and I am very impressed with the work these guys have done.

It's great seeing the pictures of you guys in action.  I'm very excited to see where this is all going, and where it'll be in three to five years and beyond.

I heard a baseball bat crack...but I don't see the ball.  Did Brian hit it out of the park?

Brian, Dan, and I each got about 2 hours to brief the mastermind group.  Counting dinners, probably a total of 8+ hours discussing BitShares and its applications to their interests.  We were very impressed with everyone we met and came away from the event invigorated and inspired.  But we are far too profoundly humble to describe how inconceivably well our interactions with them went. 

(And yes, that word does mean what I think it means.)  :)

So I really really really am not trying to be a dick here, I want to understand what Brian actually does because I don't see it and Director of Marketing seems like it should have obvious, public results.   Where are they?

Sigh... 

I miss the old Adam.  The one who brought me to bitshares.  I wonder how he's doing.

Brian did something that deserves a high five...so I for one will be giving him one.  Sure it took some time, but he is enlisting people who compliment the project.  His actions have amplified bitshares' marketing and made it so he can focus on bringing people together.  As far as the whales, they came after the tech was built because the tech is now showing it can scale to enterprise level (something bitcoin has been banging its head against for how long?) Can't we just leave it at "good job brian" for the time being? 

Thanks for your hard work Brian...and to I3--enjoy your weekend.  You deserve it.

Well said. Some people just don't understand marketing and the need for it. From my experience in other industries, some marketing people are invaluable. Others are simply really good at wasting money. I have not felt that way with Brian, who has been engaged with this and with us all the way. Baseball metaphor: we're in the 2nd inning of a 9 inning game. The middle of our order hasn't even come up to bat yet and he wants to pass judgment on the team's performance. Wait for the DACs and then you'll see what this investment has yielded; Brian has been building all the way.

I actually don't see Adam as part of the problem.  Imho he is a victim of an ecosystem that was pre-alpha and never meant to be self-sustaining out of the box.  He probably paid out of pocket for a long time before he ever saw a return for the work he was doing.  Sure he had people who loved him along the way helping him, but they were doing it out of love and respect for his intentions. 

However, when someone aspires to "cryptojournalism" in the Bitcoin environment he/she has to pay out of pocket to travel to all the big conferences and hope for donations from whales who usually want something in return.  It is hard to play in that kind of game because those whales are "voted" into power via technocratic means as opposed to shareholder opinion on the value they bring to the ecosystem.  DPOS actually makes it possible for delegates to get a solid return (when the system has grown) and also pay people/projects who are doing good works for the ecosystem itself.  Imagine how much easier it would have been if bitcoin's miners didn't have to spend so much on electricity and could reinvest it back into the ecosystem...and the people trying to promote it grassroots style. 

Thanks for appreciating the post...its not necessary though.  What I say is always from the heart and even though it is sometimes livid and openly dickish in my defenses of them, I ultimately just really care about I3 because they base everything they do off of that beautiful white paper:  "10 Laws of the Crypto Universe" https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=2876.0
