Why & How Do N1CL We Owe You(WOU) units work?
Since we can not issue stock without putting the share holders interests ahead of the Members interest in protecting and maintaining the N1CL purpose as Earth's public News exchange for everyone and anyone including E-Ts in perpetuity. This created a problem: How do we raise capital? A lawyer told me as a sole proprietorship, you can borrow money from anybody on any terms both parties agree to. Ergo N1CL WOU units.
There are 100,000,000 N1CL WOU units. That number will remain fixed in perpetuity.
revised 8-22-16 Change from 5% stipulated revenues divided between all 100 million to only divided between those WOUs actually issued to the public by the N1CL. This will increase WOUs present value at the margin enormously.)
i.e. WOUS earn 5% of stipulated gross revenues in perpetuity which will be divided equally between those WOUs the N1CL offers to and are bought by the public or are accepted as payment for services rendered.
In addition, WOUs can be divided as long as the divisions are registered at time of sale with the N1CL. So in principle the number of separate parts of the initial WOUs can increase forever. An example of how you build a sound money.
Starting today September 21, 2013, we will offer one million WOUs starting at $10 each to lenders. Full Members, first questioners, and scientists will be given preference. You must register with a real email and address to purchase, so we can correctly pay out the 5% in perpetuity on stipulated gross revenues.
In your membership agreement, you well swear to maintain the stated purpose of the N1CL as a List of people who have agreed to answer questions from anyone according to the various membership agreements from Full Member, Yes/No person, just a questioner, or registered user. Anyone can join and so agree, etc in perpetuity, and that you will not agree to sell all or part of the N1CL, or let any person(s), organizations, or let any governments diminish or interfere with everyone's right of free speech on the N1CL on your sacred honor.
We are going to thrash out how we legally maintain these conditions in perpetuity before we transfer ownership and control from my wife and I to the full members. Until we work out the full details of this transfer so that the Full Members will legally and morally run the List so as to maintain these conditions and expand its reach, hopefully to other planets, my wife and I will remain in full control. (We do need to choose an business form that does limit liability in some forms so that for example, people can not sue the List for members exercising free speech, but in a way that does not exempt members from legitimate slander or libel charges.)
An outline of our intent is as follows:
My wife's and my intent is to sell the N1CL to its voting members(only a full member who has agreed to answer questions from anyone) for $5 a full member paid from initial joining payment for 100 years from the date the first person or organization becomes a Full Member paying $25 a month. Then we and our estate will receive 2% of gross revenues as defined above for the 100 years including after ownership is transferred.
Before and after transfer, all full members must agree to never break up, sell the N1CL in whole or part, or modify the right of ANY RATIONAL SENTIENT BEING to speak, question, complain, etc, join as a full member, just register, or any other form of membership. However this does not mean your use of the List can not be restricted or barred for overt acts of jerkiness for up to seven years, however even barred, you can always post warnings or ask for help. Admins decisions in this regard can be appealed through the N1CL appeals process, loser pays costs.
My wife and I will retain full ownership and control until both of us are dead which will force ownership transfer on the above terms; or until we do the ownership transfer which we both devoutly intend to make happen while we are both still alive. We are shooting for August 16, 2024. This transfer plan means we can not sell the N1CL as we already have agreed to sell it to the Full Members, nor issue stock or any other form of security that implies an ownership control by anyone except the Full voting members. We, of course, can borrow short term in other ways besides WOUs as long as control of N1CL is not potentially encumbered. Right now the N1CL has no debt, nor do we intend to take on any except for normal banking purposes.
Before transfer of ownership we intend to keep operational control of the N1CL in the hands of a CEO, Captain, or List Keeper. For now that is Dan Alter. After transfer this person will be subject to election or removal by a censure election, or election from a seven member counsel. The List Keeper is mandated to protect the N1CL purposes and direct where to spend its profits and revenue stream so as to maintain life and the N1CL news exchange for all. For now the List Keeper shall control and spend at their direction 50% of profits to grow the List on Earth and off, the other 50% to be split among members equally without regard to WOUs owned. In an emergency the List Keeper may suspend profit payments to members solely at their discretion. I think events and members criticism and suggestions will guide and refine our actions in this regard, so we come up with a good "constitution" for the List.
Again WOUs will be repaid with 5% of N1CL stipulated gross revenues in perpetuity = forever only to those WOUs sold, paid, or issued to the public. Stipulated gross revenues = the $25 a month member fee plus ad revenues and other normal revenues. Other normal revenues will be determined by experience. e.g. not paid on interest from money in N1CL bank accounts, but yes on the 10% we add to any transaction costs we incur performing for example, an appeal. These monthly fees may change, but the 5% always applies to the gross.
Payments of the 5% will be denominated in USA dollars or whatever currency was used to lend us money by buying or performing a service for the WOUs less currency transaction costs. Should we increase membership fees, then the 5% will reflect this increase when collected. In short, the stipulated gross revenues are based upon whatever the member joining fee is, plus the monthly dues, ad revenues and other normal revenues. There will be no special breaks for any members, we all pay the same, except for hardship exceptions. Even broke your right to speak to all and answer questions will be protected.
When do we pay the 5% of defined gross revenues?
The 5% will be collected and paid on the 2nd Friday of the following month. A $1 minimum payment credited for free to your n1cl account upon request. Payments to any other electronic account of your choosing are less any actual transaction charges for the transfer. The N1CL adds 10% to any actual transaction costs for its costs.
Amounts less than $1 will be accumulated in the members name and starting after the month collected will share proportionately in any interest earned by this "unpaid 5% account". No interest on amounts under $10. WOU owners may choose to accumulate their share of the 5% in a 'paid on demand' account.
We have one WOU lender at present. I refused to continue using WOUs to borrow money with until the patent was issued and the N1CL was operational. Our first lender paid $2 each thus the N1CL is worth at least $200,000,000 dollars based upon last market price paid.
I also award them as rewards to those who have made good suggestions, etc, towards building the N1CL.
We have and will continue to reward 'paid developers and programmers' with them. See List of payments below.
Who owns remaining WOUs not bought before ownership transfer? Up to then my wife and I do, we want to use as few as possible before the transfer so List will have a growing capital position for future expansion. My wife and I are going to charge ten million or 10% of the 100 million WOUs for ourselves for creating the N1CL. One fifth or 2% of that 10% gets its stipulated 5% share. The other 8% does not share in the 5% shared between the public issued WOUs.
So the 5%is not shared by the remaining WOUs not publicly offered by the N1CL nor is the 5% shared with my wife and my 8%. These WOUs must remain as capital for the List. For now control of this capital will be under my wife and my control to be used as we see fit to promote the good of the N1CL.
Right now given a one million public offer plus those WOUs already given out coupled with Margaret and Dan's 2% means at most 4% of total WOUs will share in the 5% of stipulated gross revenues.
1. Andy Wood in 2006 lent $5000 for 2500 N1CL WOU units.
I have lost touch with Andy. He moved out of Seattle and did not tell me where. He was a bookkeeper. He had a son in the air force, officer and flier, married w. kids as I remember, stationed in Utah. Andy would be 66 now(2011). 500 WOUs to anyone who finds him.
