If you spend any time in the company of Kevin Miller, LegalSifter’s CEO, at some point he’ll insist you watch this TED talk about how to start a movement. In it, the speaker shows a video of a “lone nut” dancing on a hillside at some festival. He’s joined by someone else, and another, then more, and soon you have a throng. For the speaker, here’s the key lesson: “The first follower is what transforms a lone nut into a leader. … New followers emulate the followers, not the leader.”
Well, according to Kevin, LegalSifter’s CEO, I’m a lone nut! To extend the analogy, I’m looking for first followers.
In other words, I’m looking for individuals and organizations that not only would like to have access to our current templates but also recognize that we’re on a mission—we’re creating an alternative to the copy-and-paste machine, so drafters can escape systemic dysfunction.
I’m looking for those who share my goal of rational contract drafting and are inclined to share that goal with others.
In practical terms, what that means is that beyond the value you derive from them, it would help the cause if you and others were to subscribe to our templates. But no rush! We're still putting things in order here.
