... 11:11 has been sarcastically referred to as Larry Chiang day.

AfterParty #11:
The Eleven Minute
Eleven Second

  Here is why 11-11 is so important, watch this video

The Eleven Minute, Eleven Second AFTERParty at SXSW

It is an 11 minute, 11 second party that starts at 11:11pm

11:11 is significant because 24 1s in a row helps a youth at risk with the FICO score

Parties change history.

I am thinking about one in particular... the Boston Tea Party.
Well, today banks are not lending and when the do they rake low credit quality people over over the coals. This is a problem for poor and rich people.

To answer, I am producing an afterparty. It lasted just 11 minutes and 11 seconds, but the party will have a lasting effect. Our forefathers tossed tea into the harbor and we will do something just as revolutionary...

The mission is to beat the catch-22 of credit for youth-at-risk at college. Right now the CARD Act required rich parents to co-sign college credit card. The CARD Act curtails the sale and issuance of credit to those under 21. Attend this party to even the odds for youth-at-risk kids at college now

A party at SXSW for you. A credit score of 700+ for someone. Change America.

THE VEHICLE: The Reverse Annual Fee is a credit card product for you. It pays you $20. If you choose to take the $20 you can. Or you can choose to spend it with us to credit educate one college student to get to a FICO score of 750.

$20 is for the education. $100 is to 'cosign' a loan for $100 on a credit card where the kid charges and pays $20-35.00 / month

A credit card for you. A credit score of 750 for someone.

"This is a product I'd cut-and-paste if I didn't invent it."

Hold Your Spot: RSVP by text messaging in your FULL name to me, the President of Duck9 at "650-283-8008" with the phrase 'Reverse Annual Fee'.

This product is launched at eWeek at Stanford Feb 22, 2011.

reverse annual fee credit card launching at Stanford's eWeek

Every year this Reverse Annual Fee credit card will be paying you. And each year you can choose to either credit educate one new college student or take the $20.

We will be doing events to build awareness in Charlottesville, Pasadena, Evanston, not Berkeley, Columbus, Ithaca, Bloomington, Champaign-Urbana and Columbus. I said Columbus twice because I really like Ohio State.

reverse annual fee credit card coming out at SXSW

Our coming-out announcement is in Austin Texas at SXSW on Friday March 11 (at 11:11am) with a South by Southwest (SXSW) party March 11 @ 11:11pm.

What is the difference between launching and coming out?! I dunno but one is in Palo Alto, California and the other is in Texas.

*** END Duck9 Press Features ***

Capacity : 200 in the HOTEL W. This will sell out quickly. Hold your spot and act now.

Hold Your Spot: RSVP by text messaging in your FULL name to me at "650-283-8008" with the phrase 'Reverse Annual Fee'. Title / email / Twitter handle are optional. One person per text message. Confirmations sent via text.

FOR example, text message from Chris would look like, "Chris Larsen / CEO-founder / Chris@ProsperAss .com/ 'Reverse Annual Fee' / @ChrisLarsen. Preference will be given to proper RSVPs.

Extra credit : Tweet, "Want a Reverse Annual Fee credit card?! RT @duck9 -
Extra, extra credit: add this to your Facebook updates or tweets '#1111'.

I love 11:11 because 24 1s in a row is good credit because 1's mean an on time payment. It also reminds me of my goal at 11:11am and 11:11pm everyday.

9s = bad debt.

Avoid 9s on your credit report. Did you know many college students take a big hit in their credit score on a bad debt under $300. For example a utility bill, department store or parking ticket in LA.

9s are bad and mean a credit charge-off in credit industry lingo. It's why we named it Duck9. We were going to call it asinine (asse9) because it's asse9 to be in debt and your butt is getting 9 inches. The problem was no one could spell assinine, asinine or asse9 so we caved and called it Duck9 - Deep Underground Credit Knowledge 9

Capacity: 2,000. This will sell out. No, we won't be expanding it. No, there is no waitlist.

******** FINE PRINT ************

The Catch: There is only one catch... You have to slap a Duck9 sticker on your credit card and email in that photo.

Actually, this is optional but it'd be nice if you did this. If you email the photo of the sticker on an existing credit to with your cell in the subject line, we will enter you into a contest for a Duck9 fleece jacket worth $80.

In short, there is no catch.

Asse9 stands for Austin Secret Society of Entrepreneurs 9. It means if you're not striving to be entrepreneurial, you're asinine.

No we don't have a website or else it would not be very secret now would it

All we have is a hashtag that we rarely use '#asse9' but what we do have is a huge rolodex.
