Stop waiting...Start the revolution yourself.

To anyone who is waiting for someone else to do it, please allow me to repeat myself.

The revolution starts now. With you. I spent too much of my career thinking somebody bigger, smarter, better funded was going to make that cool thing happen. While I was waiting for them to make their move and with the smallest of resources, I started something of my own. I don't know if it's a revolution. I'll leave that assessment to someone else. What I know I do have is something that matters -- most of all to me, and if what people say is to be trusted, it also matters to some very cool others. I wish I'd started sooner. Don't wait. Shoot first. Shoot now. Do it yourself.

ps: Thanks to Tim March for inciting me to write this. He is the most dependable of muses.
