Plenty of you appreciate what I do. I know that because I hear from you. And plenty of you have given me written testimonials; for example, go here, here, here, and here. But I’d like to help foster more of a sense of community—yes, a community of contract-language nerds, but still a community—by having you share your impressions in a more, uh, intimate form.
I invite you to submit to me at firstname.lastname@example.org a short video testimonial expressing anything that comes to mind about about my work. It could be about A Manual of Style for Contract Drafting, my blog, my seminars, The Structure of M&A Contracts, or anything else. How it has been useful. How it has affected your work with contracts. What you’d like to see me do in the future. Whatever.
You may identify yourself however you wish. By first name. By first and last name. With or without your occupation. With or without the name of your organization. If you would like me to include a link to an online bio, please include that link with your email.
And don’t sweat the production values.
Let’s keep the property-rights stuff simple: You own whatever you send me; I won’t do anything other than put it up for viewing, for free, whether on YouTube, on this blog, or elsewhere. If you tell me you want me to take it down, I will.
Just to make you feel better about whatever you record, I offer you, for your dubious viewing pleasure, a two-minute extract of a jowlier, besuited version of me speaking at a 2005 panel discussion. It looks like it’s from 1985. And I’m still talking about the same flipping stuff 15 years later!
OK bitchez, here’s the first entry, from Mark Anderson, aka @IPDraughts. Let me tell you, he doesn’t come cheap!
