|Hi everyone, a progress report Thursday evening Americas time:|
First and foremost, after allowing a couple of days for other options to show, at some point tomorrow I hope to link up with two people who have expressed an interest in the CEO position at MIRL. Of the two, one is an obvious candidate and I've already informed them as much, the other is a less likely option (and we both know that, too). I'm going to talk with both tomorrow, but it's also clear that sooner rather than later, we'll need to pool CS knowledge and discuss candidates/strategies etc before deciding on any slate. I'll talk with both tomorrow and suggest ideas to the most likely candidate that will allow us to pool ideas.
To answer a Q below: I haven't heard a thing out of MIRL since my meeting with their company representative, two Mondays ago. On that score I urge you all to write in to MIRL office with your questions and if you do, ask them for the relevant details work experience and qualifications. We should also ask them to confirm the personal friendships, some go back decades.
The above stated, but let¿s also recognize there's not much enthusiasm for a battle on this board (as yet). I can't blame anyone for being thoroughly fed up with this never-ending story (and truth is, you can count me in) but I also know that the more interaction we get on this board, with posters and likes on posts, the quicker we can build some momentum. I'm not doing anything as presumptuous as "interviewing for a CEO" tomorrow, but assuming a suitable candidate we'd have a start of an active proxy slate and true alternative to the current mess.
Finally, a few more people have joined the CS list, were now up to 31m shares pledged.
