.@TomCruise A fair comparison, no? In May 2017 you were still looking at ideas for #MissionImpossibleFallout? The hijacking, chase and crash looks very similar to Ormus King 1. How was NZ anyway, a little chilly? https://t.co/IkDpaAVvs3 pic.twitter.com/nfchDkSf2h

Icy Blu – Pump It (1991)
1:16 – “That’s when I overheard a guy named Tom, blowin’ his own trumpet …nice ‘n’ hard!”
Fast and loose race at a slow and steady pace!
The story of Bopgig is a long one – and not without hiccups.
2001: Final-year undergrad student enters MBA competition.
2003: Multiple PHP apps cobbled together. Later GrooveGuide is added – a free street-press magazine. Problem: lack of app integration and hence automated signups.
2009: Rethinking the business model and user experience. BopGig or GigPop?
2010: A working prototype launches. A Y-Combinator application occurs.
2011: Development moves from USA to Israel.
I'm like Jimmy Page, but I create requirements, not riffs.

2012: Public launch and then a pivot into indefinite hibernation!
2020: Hibernation continues!
Bopgig is to ticketed entertainment what Amazon is to commerce.

Over-Promising and Over-Delivering
The mostly never seen before 2012 final screenshots have finally arrived.
Hidden Wealth of Nature (2020)
Screenwriter duo @beckandwoods were looking for original franchise ideas when speaking to Lucasfilm in 2019. May I suggest a mountain peak for a peek?https://t.co/jp82VnWnvU – @sonypictures Seeking an octology? https://t.co/XA0LiD7m3O

I came up with Ormus King 7 (then 6) while camping at the Goldsborough Valley campground in September 2019. I never planned on it happening.
This area was (and still is) an ancient aboriginal tribal meeting point. I’m not surprised.
I would wake up with very powerful visions for the story when the night before I had no idea what to imagine or write — too much information to process.
I doubt I could have come up with this story – which sees the rebuilding of the Third Temple in Jerusalem anywhere else – even in Jerusalem itself. I lived in Jerusalem from 2010 – 2018 and came up with Ormus King 1 + 2 in 2017.
The power and significance of this place owes to its closeness to Walsh’s Pyramid, the world’s highest natural freestanding pyramid and also Bellenden Ker and Bartle Frere – Queensland’s highest mountains. It also sits next to the Mulgrave River. But who knows, maybe those things came after its significance was determined somehow.
Another way to look at the area is as a natural anti-depressant.
The area is not remote however. In Far North Queensland, mountains and national parks are intertwined into the city areas.
As I headed into October, the March flies arrived and were simply unbearable – much worse than mosquitoes because of their painful bite and they attack a moving target.
The devil lurks
During the writing of this story, I encountered (and reported) a shoplifter at Jay Car in Cairns, a 45 min drive away – and that made me think – perhaps my story was (and still is) being used (ie stolen) somehow? Time will tell.
I was at @jaycarau (auto accessories store) in Cairns last year and reported a shoplifter. Later the clerk told me he saw a shoplifter where the police had to pry the stolen goods from his hands during the theft at the store. He said prison has little effect with kleptomania.

Oh what could've been?!? The original 4th Jamiroquai album was rewritten and re-recorded without their best bassist Zender after a falling out late in production. https://t.co/DJ7zr4E0qI Shame on you @Disney! Don't scrap the work though, it's just unlicensed! *I may be wrong* https://t.co/MKSZqOoDxu

2010 – The Twitter UI gets an overhaul
pic 4 notes: (2010 screenshot)
(1) Browse pre-selected twitter accounts from a menu that is opened.
(2) Searchable list of celebrity accounts from @valebrity within a dropdown.
(3) 2nd and 3rd columns (middle and right) could be switched with the preference remembered between sessions.
- 1st and 3rd columns floated into view (with fresh user data) whenever a user was selected within the middle column.
- The basis of this site was done by a talented WordPress developer in Romania using newly released Web 2.0 tech according to my spec. I ended up building upon that foundation very substantially in the subsequent months. The site became unusable when Twitter changed their API in August 2010 but I still have the code and had fun building it. I initially launched it via a Techcrunch comment.
0:58: “We had a bunch of changes in mind that we’ve been wanting to do for a long time. And sometimes you can make them incrementally and sometimes it kind of takes a big rethinking. And so this was one of those times where we decided to take a big leap forward just to create the best product we can.” ~ Evan Williams, 9/2010
The Twitter UI could look and function more like Soundcloud. It should be more of a media platform and have a fixed area for viewing videos/pictures/music and allow the surfing between accounts while this is taking place. Imagine Soundcloud doing vids!

I suspect 1 or more top Hollywood firms (eg @Disney) are working toward 8 films based on me and my work – illegally, unfortunately. I have no proof but solid reasoning to make this claim. Activist money take note @Elliottmgmtcorp mentioned here https://t.co/PbhYFCTh9p

The David Rubenstein Show – Paul Singer – (Strategies for Successful Investing – Elliott Management) (2017)
In a 2017 interview, Singer was asked to describe what he wanted the “headline” of his life to be. He paused for several moments before saying, “He tried to make a difference. He protected a lot of people’s capital over a long period of time. He was steady, reliable.” (source or at 23:08 above)
I myself have had many ideas about how companies should improve themselves, for example by producing a better product or website. I have also seen many of my submitted ideas implemented – but not with Sun Microsystems.
The business strategy for Sun may be found here: https://t.co/fWRVkxTo1U "hobby" in the sense that I wasn't employed to write it. I was very serious and shareholders should've benefited a lot financially. I recall McNealy saying a strategic error was underestimating 32bit H/W

Note: regarding my strategic vision for Sun (link above or pic 2 below), I am still left wondering why TheInquirer.net’s shutdown screen (a news site that briefly reported on the strategy back in 2003) is not accurate today as to when it itself began. Seems like it should read 2001 and not 2006, what am I missing? It was only acquired in 2006.
However, the whole idea of activist investing is new to me. It’s like management consulting on steroids.
Today, imagining myself as an activist investor (or working closely with one,) I would investigate, test and eventually install free energy devices into pre-existing energy infrastructure. Regardless of outcome, that process should be broadcast live and also turned into a documentary.
Doesn't make much sense talking about environmental conservation (and destruction) without also talking about free energy technologies (beyond just renewables.) You need the carrot, not just the stick against Earth-destroyers.

* This entire scene could make a great film clip (eg guy loses his girl to a yeti) or vehicle advertisement (eg Mercedes Benz) about being able to withstand things worse than you can imagine through sheer strength.
