ok you mentioned and will provide me (kw) the 3 things i wanted from you. an no. please feel free to tell me exactly what you are thinking, at all times. being innocently honest works great for me.

I'd like to through somethings out to you (below) to see if any of them stick.

my void is in others not being willing to explore the tools i've used for years.

now let's see how we can use free open source software in social business venture by participating in Making Fairs. this is where I want to have making genealogy activities... from a historical perspective:

http://turnkeylinux.org has 80+ apps that all use the same core Debian OS. This is a game changer for learning categories of apps and having access to installing your own copy and publishing it to AWS when you are ready.
https://caltek.net/turnkeylinux has several that i use

On the Desktop I use - http://exelearning.net
ctn translation services uses eXe 

therefore, i have 100's of single file documents and i broke it into components.

i use the eXe editors to outline and publish scorm, html5 and more. you and i went through this another time. not sure what happened but this is fundamental to the growth potential with kmw. 

There are several Desktop distro's I use:


Online Servers kmw has invested in http;//cloudatcost.com provisions which i have just over a years experience with.

http://wecanf.net/learn is a Moodle instance that has run continuously for 4yrs. now. i'm the only one that uses it and it provides a viable LMS that can connect to the xAPI and I produce SCORM and IMS using the eXeLearning Desktop editor.

I do not want to go on too much here. I'm not sure how much you really want to know. 

anyway, eXe Desktop app allows me to take a document and copy and paste it's structure into a dynamic outline. Then be able to collaborate and even publish outside of going back and forth via e-mail.

the cTn eCoLearning SysTem is ramping up to convert existing content and synthesis other content using xAPI LRS https://www.ht2labs.com/

Email is for notifications. and some dialog...you know all this.

Greetings Kenneth,

This is not meant or intended to be an insult, but a professional
observation. It's amazing how much clarity can be gained in
reciprocal/mutual interest relationships. Social capital is grounded in
trust and respect that will serve as a foundation for reciprocal
relationships. Losing either one of them will lead to dysfunctional
relationships. As BCC moves forward with team-building, first quarter 2019,
we're focusing more and more on what's really at work in the process of
establishing collaborations and partnerships: Clear and consistent
communication. Open, transparent, and accountable too.

The 21st-century models of doing business rely on cooperation to increase
impact and achieve outcomes. Since BCC operates as a social business:*
we're not profit-driven as in capitalistic ventures. We understand the
importance of revenue to fund our work but we *prioritize* the quality of
work we're doing to truly, as best we can, work on *causes *as defined
by *Muhammad
Yunus*, the premier originator of this knowledge. I invite you to review *the
link* I shared. He also worked with other geniuses like Ancestor Kofi Annan
to establish better frameworks and methodologies for doing the necessary
work of creating change.

I hope this helps with why I'm emphasizing how I won't allow BCC pro bono
work on initiatives involving funding. There is absolutely no reason or
excuse for me to approve any proposals where BCC is short-changed in
revenue, and therefore, unable to fund our causes.

I have repeatedly stated this, re: revenue, so at this point, I would
prefer not to be involved. Please contact me when there are more definitive
plans, clearly articulated about how BCC can participate and/or help. I've
spent enough time trying to accommodate and need to move on with BCC's 2019
priorities. WBE certification is a game-changer so we'll update
our registration in grants.gov when and where it's warranted. What's on
deck right now is completing SAM and associated registrations.

In the meantime, I'll forward my bio and resume so it can be in the
proverbial hopper and retrieved when collaborative possibilities arrive on
your end. Know that I trust and respect you. Now I'm trying to get us on
the same page....organization, company, initiative, proposal, research,
genealogy, education, and other collaborative opportunities.

I'm sure you can pull this off. In fact, I know you can.

In liberation and solidarity,
