Not dead, just inadvertent stealth mode

So I haven’t posted in three and a half years. Time for an updated I think. This post is basically a recap from the start plus catching up all three of my readers (hi mom) to today. Back in 2009 I set out to solve an extraordinarily large, yet hidden problem: the dumping of sludge, hazardous […]

How To Establish A Company in Hong Kong, part 1

There are two things you have to accomplish in order to establish a company, no less, or it ain’t gonna happen. One: You must become a company. All the co-founders have to be aware that the company exists now, even if it takes no physical form. What I mean is, you have to come to […]

Along with two co-founders (update: co-founder quantity may vary) we are developing microwave plasma gasification and pyrolysis technology to help solve the world’s waste management challenges. This is the story of my journey from wantrepreneur to industrialist tycoon, or failed […]

And it came to be….

This is my first, and hopefully not last, post on this blog. I have started this blog for three primary reasons: ONE I am the founder of a startup, and the internet demands that founders of startups have blogs.
