Brian Patrick Cork is living the Authentic Life

the shadowy Troy Brown says brian cork is a Liar



most opportunities realize themselves unexpectedly. and, the majority of you won’t care about any of the following. three of you might.

being a Prudent and Optimistic Gentleman means I, more often than not, must hold myself “out there”. that can mean all manner of things. but, it’s often relative to scrutiny – attack is an option. and, the list must also include derision.

although I am of uncertain consequence amongst my Brothers, I remain everyman. and, part of the Prudent Gentleman’s mission is to makes things happen, point other things out, and, generally be involved.

in any event, after a recent post, a shadowy and uncertain figure calling themselves “Troy Brown” decided to come after me in the comments section. Belinda does not allow many comments on our blogs (“because it’s so much work to manage”). however, over the course of some verification she realized she was facing-off with one of the shadowy and insidious “they”. we don’t intend to honor “them” in any fashion. to be sure, we are not suggesting they are reasonable, potent, or possessed of merit. we do believe they are provocateurs, instigators, rabble-rousers, and loosely associated with the Black Dog and perhaps worse, the Smoking Rabbit.

I’ve met Mr. Page. and, I admire him. there are times when I might envy him. but, I don’t lay claim to knowing him. I do want everyone to focus less on me, and more on my original point concerning the conflux of change in leadership that will certainly catapult great companies to new heights. I am a shareholder of both Apple and Google, and I’m keen to see both companies change the world materially.

all that said, I decided to share the exchange with you, with a narrative of sorts. we decided to do Mr. Brown (he makes me think of those bad guys in funny sun glasses from the Matrix. or, maybe thats the image he’s hoping for) one better and take this from the comments and put it all right out here in the open. decide for yourselves, collectively any merit.

Troy Brown who is apparently not actually Troy Brown:

“I spoke with Larry Page late last night.”

I literally laughed out loud when I read this. It is truly a priceless quote. It takes great courage to so boldly lie to everyone you know – kudos for that strength.

It could have been better, though. You could have thrown in an “again” or changed “spoke with” to “had beers with” or even added “when Larry Page was at my house last night for dinner”.

And, to top it off, you thrown in a quote from a clear pseudonym – syntax and grammar were the give aways. People are much smarter than you give them credit for; they choose to allow you to continue the charade – out of pity, maybe.


Good afternoon Mr. Brown.

Thank you for visiting Unsinkable brian cork.

You have certainly left us a provocative comment!

Two things need to be addressed.

1.  You have made a direct attack on another person. That is mean-spirited and inappropriate.

2.  You state that a quote was used:

‘And, to top it off, you thrown in a quote from a clear pseudonym – syntax and grammar were the give aways. People are much smarter than you give them credit for; they choose to allow you to continue the charade – out of pity, maybe.’

I’ve checked. But, I don’t see a quote used. There is however a link to a third-party article that tracks to what the post is about. We view that as prudent and weighty.

So, here is what we need to do…

Please come back with a good way to verify your true identity. LinkedIn might be a good start. And, you’ll need to explain your thinking around the quote.

If you can’t or won’t do this then we have to reasonably assume you are only attempting to be nasty and find yourself without merit.

I’m looking forward to hearing from you.

Troy Brown:

“You have found a typo in my comment!  Instead of “quote”, I meant to type “comment”.  The first comment by “Andy S.” is clearly the same writer as the rest of the blog.  In addition, it is evident by your syntax and grammar that you are the same writer as the other two.  So, either “Belinda Dobson O’Hearn” ghost writes for Brian Cork and ghost comments, or Brian Cork uses aliases to make himself appear bigger than he is.  Either case is sad.

As the moderator, you have the ability to edit my post, I believe.  If so, please change “quote” to “comment”.

Also, you say I made a direct attack.  I’d like to ask, “with which statement?”  I said that he was bold and strong.  The first line of the blog post is clearly and obviously a lie – it is almost laughable to think that you would try and deny it.

I think it would be interesting to see this comment approved.  How many people in his vast network of business professionals, athletes, politicians, et al would come to his defense?  And, then, how many would agree with me?  But, truth be told, I doubt many people read this blog, so it would be difficult to assess, especially since we know Brian is apt to create another alias or twenty.

And, for your information, we receive a notification any time Mr. Page’s name is mentioned in a personal blog.  We first started monitoring your blog after your first mention of him in October.  The context at that time was benign, but you’ve made a bold statement with this post.

And, as I’m sure you can understand, Brian/Belinda/Andy, I can’t divulge my real identity.  In my line of work, it could be dangerous.  People don’t like to be exposed, but sometimes, it is for the betterment of all.




[name of person she believes Troy to actually be] you are so silly.

If you don’t like aliases, why use one yourself?

Your “line of work”?

Quote or comment it still does not work. What are you referring to? Please be more clear.


the exchange did go on a bit. but, it ran itself to ground with Mr. Brown coming across as self-important without adding anything new.

Mr. Brown takes his best shots from the shadows. he therefore renders himself moot. let’s hope he isn’t run over by those rabbits. however, today we have this terrific opportunity to bring some new readers, scrutiny and attention to the great things happening in corporate America and the technology and thought leaders that are more deservedly in the limelight, and making for a clear difference.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

Let’s go with: Antonio Vivaldi 4/12 – Summer, Allegro Non Molto.

The story is always about a tree. There must certainly be a tree in it.

And, a smoking rabbit – and, possibly a grim dog (likely in the possession of a pipe).

Yes, certainly that. Damn them.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

…Right then.

I’ve organized the rebellion.

Let’s saddle up.

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
