I am a retired US Government analyst, currently residing in Germany. I am also a shareholder in the company called Integral Technologies (OTCBB: ITKG), and have a desire to enlighten and share its great and still emerging story. I am well read, focused and appreciate challenging interactions which spark creativity and develop enlightenment. That is why I created the ElectriPlast Blog, and the reason I am here.

ElectriPlast: The Journey

A Trivial Pursuit...

Or the Pursuit

of Excellence?

By D.W.

Special to the ElectriPlast

Trivial Pursuit is a board game where progress is determined by a player's ability to answer general knowledge or popular culture questions. The game was conceived in 1979 by Scott Abbott, a sports editor for the Canadian Press, and Chris Haney, photo editor for the Montreal Gazette.

There are those who would have you believe that Integral’s pursuit – that of taking its intellectual property in the form of ElectriPlast to market -- is a trivial pursuit, or a pursuit of the trivial. One doesn’t have to look too far to find those who attempt to marginalize or minimize it.

The obvious question is: Why?

Although we are not naïve enough to believe that their motivations for doing so are “pure” in that they are the self-appointed protectors of the stock universe and not merely driven by nefarious designs, it could well be that they just don’t get it – they don’t understand.

Electrical Toy” Summarily Dismissed

Allow me to share a brief example of how there have always been those who doubted, mocked and ridiculed what they did not understand as well as those who possessed the uncanny ability to see beyond what “is” to what “can and will be.” The following few paragraphs were taken from the opening of an article in the October issue of Business 2.0 titled, ‘The Next Disrupters’ written by Erick Schoenfeld and Jeanette Borzo:

““What use could this company make of an electrical toy?” With those words, William Orton, the president of Western Union, dismissed the newfangled gadget offered him for $100,000 in 1876. Other leading lights echoed his skepticism. “An interesting novelty,” financier J. Pierpont Morgan huffed. “But the telephone has no commercial application.”

The telephone, as it turned out, did have a commercial application or two. It was one of the greatest disruptive technologies in history, changing forever the method of human communication, creating whole new industries, destroying others, and savaging those who failed to grasp its implications – including Orton’s Western Union, which saw its telegraph-based networks come under fierce attack by the rapid spread of Alexander Graham Bell’s electrical toy.

That’s the way it is with disruptive technologies: Almost no one fully comprehends what a shock to the existing order they represent until well after the rattling has begun. You think those guys in the cave knew what they were really onto when they clacked some rocks together and got fire? In our era, as recently as 15 years ago few could have imagined that this curiosity called the Internet would utterly challenge the way we work, play and challenge incumbent senators in Connecticut.”

Make no mistake about it –

Integral Technologies and its ElectriPlast technology, with 111 patents approved or pending, is setting the stage to become the “it,” a true disrupter in the conductive polymer industry. This Blog, this article and all those who would presume to speak for Integral Technologies intend to show that their pursuit, far from being trivial, is the pursuit of excellence.

Future Blog pieces will show the path they have followed and are following in that noble pursuit.

Thank you much for the words of encouragement.

I have to be honest though, a number of the articles --the last two in particular-- have come from shareholders very much like you.

I may be speaking out of turn, but my take on their intention is to let the numerous soft-spoken, often anonymous investors -- their fellow shareholders -- know that they are not alone.

Moreover, to bolster the sincere conviction held (even as fact and proof continues to become realized) that ElectriPlast is indeed real, and that for a Penny Stock, this is one of those extremely “rare-finds.” This investment is rare in the way that it has the far-reaching ability to impact every market conceivable.

Anywhere electronics are used, ElectriPlast can provide a cheaper substitute.

Anywhere antennas are used, PlasTenna can provide a better, cheaper, less resistant (which means less drain on a battery) alternative.

Any new or old technology at hand can benefit--from uses in Avionics, to uses in Medical machinery. From uses in solar screens, to uses in building environmentally friendly, lighter and longer lasting Batteries. From uses in prototype technologies yet to emerge to uses in the emerging world of Nano-technology.

ElectriPlast can and will find a niche.

The hold-up to date has centered on IP defense. How to defend such a technology once the company let the Genie out of the bottle.

It's not an impossible feat, but it does take care, caution, counsel, and planning.

IMO Integral--though some may say otherwise--is on the correct path that will not only benefit the company (making it strong and independent), but will also benefit us as shareholders. . . scratch that last, we are far more than that at this point in time.

When this stock hits the $15-$25 range, the people who invest then will be shareholders.

What we are, at this early stage of the game--we are stakeholders. Sight-unseen we are here and invested on the potential. With that kind of investment, we have the potential of reaping huge; make those massive, returns for the paltry investment we offered to this sight-unseen vision.

Those who invest at the $15-$25 range will have a solid clue as to what the potential is. They will have validation through use by numerous Fortune 100, or Fortune 500 companies throughout the country and around the world. They will be able to see and touch products as they get a sense to the total impact possible.

At this point stakeholders like you and the others reading this Blog merely have a vision in mind.

To help you in solidifying that vision, I encourage you to view a short video by: Dr. Loo from the University of Austin Texas.

She has a far better command of words and manner to bring alive her description of the potentials and possibilities that await us on this ElectriPlast Journey. . .


All right, enough from me -- sorry to get preachy there. The reality is we are not alone, and the Blog is a joint effort that all reading can contribute to. If you have a story to tell -- even if it is how you heard or found out about ElectriPlast and this investment, share it.

These -- apart from the highbrow tech stories available on ElectriPlast -- are the stories I for one relish in hearing.

I am sure I am not alone.

Rather than be alone in this investment, join the community of your fellow visionaries, stakeholders. Share words of wisdom, or just tell your story.

Whoever you are, wherever you are--this ElectriPlast Blog belongs to us and is ours to use for this purpose.

Cheers and best to all...
