A few weeks ago, I posted a request for a venture capitalist to pitch an idea to. I thought I found someone, but I never heard back.
Nowadays I have more than enough work and hobbies, and more ever on the horizon. So, I'm going to do the unthinkable, and post the plan here for all to consume; lock, stock, and barrel.

Just a friendly reminder:
Literally anyone with a bank account can now accept debit cards, using PayPal, or even a swiper which attaches to your iPhone.

If you've seen James Cameron's "Titanic", then you might not have noticed one of the more interesting things about the vintage giant cruise liner: the manual lever which the Captain uses to control the ship. This ship, arguably the most complex machine ever built at the time, had millions of individual parts. But they…Continue
