This is an experimental, concept blog containing animated videos primarily about people, business and governmental related current topics and developments. The blog is simply an effort to present materials in a different manner using simple animation, while not being a professional animator. The topics and developments are the focus – not the animation – but I am making software and presentation improvements, and I anticipate additional improvements soon. My other blogs are http://californiaestatetrust.com (trust, estate and elder abuse litigation and contentious administrations) and http://auditcommitteeupdate.com (audit committees, D&O, business, risk management, compliance, liability, internal controls, audit, etc.). This blog does not provide legal or other professional advice or representations. Nothing in this blog states or is intended to state that any person or any organization or entity has done anything wrongful or unlawful – those are often complicated legal and evidentiary issues – thus, instead, the blog discussions merely present different opinions and possible approaches or options for banter. This blog will either be a success, or a failure or somewhere in between, and hopefully remains thoughtful and isn't just too goofy or unusual. This absolutely is not a political blog; however, you will see some political or government related animations as appropriate within the broader focus of the blog. Wishing the best to you, Dave Tate, San Francisco and California.
