Letter to Organization Committee


Greetings Fellow SDHS 68'er of Decatur,

I offer an interesting twist to our 50th anniversary. I am launching an internet company from which I desire little of the inherent wealth. My business model explains why I am not interested in the probable millions of dollar in equity: What am I going to do with millions at our age? I have not kids to spoil or rot. My goal is to allocate shares of ownership to those who support the tools of timism for the needed better democracy and capitalism.

Cutting to the chase: For the 1st 1,000,000 accounts, signup is free at www.24in4.com where you and yours will be able to claim upwards of $200,000 in stock if you are one of the early birds. Each subsequent account pays an hour of wages. The second million signups will generate about $25,000,000.

My marketing plan has several fingers

  1. I am presently in the process of spending a week at SIUE to make it the Center of Timism: The Morality of More Time. If the powers-to-be do a mass email to current and past students, it will be over 100,000 contacts.
  2. I will be shortly emailing my list of 6000 news reporters. I have under the moniker 24in4 had fourteen PRs on various aspects of Timism: The Morality of More Time. I have had only 100 unsubscribes for the approximate 84,000 emailings. I mention this to indicate that I have a media audience interested in Timism.

Cutting to the second chase: In anticipation of a viral response to timism (which you should be able to ascertain as you signup at www.24in4.com) any classmate and spouse who signs up  (within 10 days) with SDHS68@timism.com as their sponsor will receive a free Caribbean cruise with paid airfare. Childless, what do I want to be a final memory: Leave money to people I don't know or add a memorable moment to those who helped formed me?

Please, an important consideration: In effect you are beta testers for which the cruise will be a reward. As beta-testers you are requested not to encourage others to sign-up until I have reviewed the bugs you found. You will be the first to know the "all clear" if you follow on twitter@24in4WorkWeek so as to encourage relatives and friends to take advantage of the bonus credits. Viral too soon could be castastrophic to the goal.

I encourage you to act quickly because the "homesteaded" bonuses drop quickly from six-figures to the low five-figures.  Besides homesteading a bonus, I encourage you to "endow" a public service for more Timism shares.

A question: How many working Americans would pay one hour of wages to have all loans refinanced? The rich do it all the time, e.g., Sally Mae, Freddy Mac, The Fed, etc.

When the funds become reality at the 2,000,000 member mark, the 50th anniversary committee will be contacted. A travel agency will make all the arrangements. A list will be provided of those who signed up within thirty days of this email with the sponsor SDHS68@timism.com. Anticipated overall cost is $1 million. My goal is to drain my estate to zero before I die. You can help.

More important than this class reunion cruise are the steps leading up to it:

  1. You will help promote the Primary Moral Imperative of saving life on earth from climate change upon which I first wrote in 1982 predicting worsening droughts with downwind deluges.
  2. You will help promote 24in4: By better employing our human resources, we can have a 24-hour workweek in 4-years with more funds and fun for self, family and community in a safer, saner world. A shorter workweek is too late for us, but not for your children and grandchildren. Never too late for a safer, saner world.
  3. You will help promote better democracy and capitalism via the tools of timism: Brainbees and Lifehours.
  4. Your retirement nestegg will be enlarged by the quickness with which you act for a free Timism account, an action that can be extended to friends and family.
  5. Let us be part of something bigger than any of us.
