I'm both frustrated and excited these days. I've worked on this ProxThink project in one way or another for over thirty years. I've financed it and have quite a bit of startup debt. Yet at the same time, it is launched and ready for visitors. Plus, I'm offering to work with people using ProxThink.

This project is entirely funded by me, David Loughry, at this point. The debt figure above is the result of creating this set of ideas and website. My total investment over the years is much more. I've got basically no credit left to tap. Please see this site ProxMonitor link for more details about Money Needed and what we're asking you to do.

Current Approach to Life

My current approach to life focuses on creating situations with a variety of potential relationships. I prefer a great deal of variety and stimulation, especially in the areas of ideas, innovation, global affairs, art, music and people. I want the ProxThink project to become more collaborative, both for the variety, and also because it has become bigger than I can or want to manage. I want to move more towards my desired variety (see below).

Desired Variety

• ProxThink-related activities - 30 to 40% of my time
• Painting and art ( - 30 to 40% of my time
• New ventures and projects - 20 to 40% of my time

On Painting

Painting and the art world are a big part of who I am. I've slowly learned I must do some ProxThink in order to do some art, and vice versa. Painting and ProxThink complement each other. In fact, painting and drawing played a role in the development of ProxThink, as a testing place for ideas and relationships. One of my challenges is to help the two of them get along, in a ProxPatterns-related way. So it is important to me that the growth of ProxThink and related ProxThink Projects not overtake painting and art. You can see some of my work at

My Evolving Role in ProxThink

I've developed some ideas concerning what I would like my role to involve in the evolving arc of what this site and project could become, which you can find here.
