Google Ventures begging letter....


To: ventures@google.com
Subject:Sustainable IT, Smart Energy Homes and modular platforms...


I am working on a non-profit co-op startup called http://www.nodecity.com/ out of Melbourne, Australia which will scale globally as a decentralist movement; think of it as permaculture for IT. I will be at the SecurityMetrics conference in your headquarters April 20th, San Francisco, CA. -> http://www.securitymetrics.org/content/Wiki.jsp?page=Metricon3.5 e.g. visiting SF from April 18th to April 24th 09'. I would love to just chat to someone or buy them a coffee rather than pitch :) I am hingeing my plans on mesh and 3G/4G backhaul including geo-arbitrage of eco cloud services.

This is my background http://donalcv.blogspot.com/ and this is my passion http://tr.im/zentramp <--video explaining my 3 passions, as startups are about *people* and ideas methinks. The video is a rehearsal I did for a unique un-conference here in Melbourne http://trampolinemelb.com/ this past Saturday... I removed most of the 'ums' and 'ehs'... while actually speaking!

Essentially I wish to foster the coming awareness, social change, and sustainability via 'teaching people to fish'. I am sick to death of the snake-oil, silver bullet sales and profiteering by IT in general.

Thanks for reading my email and hopefully you'll take a peak at my video/cv http://tr.im/zentramp

Humble regards,
