Post Cambridge ... early 60s

Early in my career I worked for Aerosol Techniques Inc (ATI) in their corporate office in Milford, Connecticit where I was the Assistant Treasurer. Herman 'Shep' Shepherd was the CEO, an entrepreneur who was a very successful pioneer in the aerosol industry. He invested some of his financial gains in an island a little way off the coast of Connecticut that was previously owned by Billy Rose. Every few months we would have corporate strategic planning meetings on the island which had not been changed in any way from the time when Billy Rose was alive and the host ... not even the staff had changed. This 'flashback' brings back interesting memories of these meetings! This all happened in the late 1960s ... 1968 and 1969.

TrueValueMetrics (TVM) is an Open Source / Open Knowledge initiative. It has been funded by family and friends plus donations from well wishers who understand the importance of accountability and getting the management metrics right. TVM is a 'big idea' that has the potential to be a game changer leveling the playing field so the wealth and power is shared on a more reasonable basis between people who work for a living and those that own the economy and the levers of power. In order to be effective, it cannot be funded in the conventional way with a for profit business plan, but absolutely must remain an open access initiative.
WE WANT TO MAINTAIN AN OPEN KNOWLEDGE MODEL
A MODEST DONATION WILL HELP MAKE THAT HAPPEN
