“Having lived a highly
satisfying life, thanks to an upbringing that included a
strong, confidence-giving mother, an excellent formal
education at Stanford and the University of Chicago, and
years in the “school of hard knocks” that included 15
years in the international operations of IBM followed by
25 years of entrepreneurial activity in an emerging
Russia, I have things of value to contribute to the
Innompic Games community. Many of the things I
have learned in my life’s journey are described in the
“Bannana books” I continue to write in an effort to
share experiences others will hopefully find helpful in
navigating their paths through life. Live without fear
and you will find your destiny. The spirit of
Innompic Games nurtures deserves to be spread to all
corners of the world by technologies that make it

Russia” is both a personal story of a quest to “make a difference” by
seeking a personal destiny by identifying “comparative advantage”, and a
business book, describing and illustrating (with examples) a business
model for the commercialization of potentially transformational
technologies. A key business topic addressed is the need to properly
protect intellectual property with international patents.
The setting for my story is a young
Russia, emerging in the early 90’s
after the collapse of the Soviet Union. It can thus also be considered a
travel book of historical interest. And written to attract attention to
a technology I found in Moscow with the potential to change the world:
the world’s first effective treatment and potential PREVENTION of
Alzheimer’s and other age-related neurological ailments!
One of the chapters (16) describes
Kotelnikov’s Virtual Venture
Valley conference in Ulyanovsk,
Russia, in 2010, a preview of ideas and
concepts that became the Innompic Games.
The book is difficult to
categorize. What I can say is that it is a true story of a life lived
without fear that hopefully contains relevant lessons for Innompic Games
participants, learned in “the school of hard knocks”.
If you find it interesting, and worth reading, you are invited to pass
it on to friends so it gains the viral visibility on the world-wide web
I believe it deserves...
My “Bannana books” tell true
stories that deserve to be widely known by persons
interested in changing the world for the better.

you are interested and how you plan to share them with
others and I will send you an electronic copy of the book
