Yeah, some decisions were certainly not the best. Reading back through board discussions did evoke some eyerolls. Hindsight is a wonderful thing though.

I think the current board are doing an excellent job. Whalaw, whether he wanted the job or not, is a great chairman. There's financial oversight. Voting is being done by quorum so there's no waiting around for a board member to take part.
Definitely better than it was before.

We can't undo the past but we can certainly push forward for the future. Hopefully everyone can support that. I know things haven't changed too much since we started but the tech team have been working really hard. We've got a test server up and running now and we can start working on the updates/improvements everyone wants.

It's actually more than half. With that said, there's really only one long term BOD member that remains and that's Electrachrome. When the prior regime was falling apart in February, I asked Electrachrome to remain on the BOD because he offers a lot of intangibles which we weren't likely to find elsewhere. The other three, including myself, were seated within the past year or so, when BOD members started dropping like flies. When I took a seat, the BOD was already in deep, deep trouble. Only a few were engaged. So, nothing was getting accomplished because there weren't enough engaged BOD members to vote. That left the people who held the "keys" to EB to make their own decisions in many circumstances. Unfortunately, (my personal thoughts here) those decisions were driven by "padding their own pocket" instead of what's in the best interest of Expresso Beans.com, Inc. The apathy and animus on the BOD was palpable. I think this was due to the money/salary issue and expectations. In short, when the decision maker is/was using EB as their personal "cash cow," what was in the best interests of EB fell by the wayside.

So "a particular set of skills," gotcha. Don't worry fellas, money recovery is in process. :wink:

I do find it hilarious that for the past 10 years everyone was like "THIS ISN'T A JOB NO ONE IS GETTING PAID, WE'RE VOLUNTEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERS" and then whoops someone's getting paid a decent salary to essentially run the website into the ground.
