Think Tank of One
By creating my 'Think Tank of One', I intend to provide timely and reasoned comment and interpretation on issues related to organized violence and instability.
Friends and supporters will receive a monthly briefing on a relevant issue. As the project continues, I'll be building an exciting website and providing regular commentary on current events on Youtube.
Everyone's challenge these days is to make sense of the flood of information we all cope with, I can be a rock in that river.
My personal philosophy is I've always got something new to learn, this means I've always got something new to share.
This was to be the vehicle that I used to raise funds to keep myself going while I looked to re-ignite my career. However, wolf is not only at the door, it's chasing me out of it and into the street. I'm out of time and resources.
If I land somewhere on my feet, I'll keep blogging for the joy of it, but I won't be asking for funding. Work is slowly coming my way, and I remain (often foolishly) optimistic, but the crunch time has come.
For the help I have received so far, much thanks, and I know that some happy day, I'll have a lot to pay forward. Let's just hope that day comes very soon.
As ever, your support is deeply appreciated!
