But I would like to offer my TWO CENTS worth of advice since I have lots
and lots of arrows in my back from EXPERIENCE
. That is what they
call it when we get OLD [GRIN]!
I have founded 4 high-tech startups. In the good old days we could talk
about our company's in public arenas. Those days are long gone. As
officers, directors and even employees of Companies - we all need to be
EXTREMELY Careful what we say in public about the Company we work
for. IT IS CALLED INSIDER KNOWLEDGE.
If that insider knowledge
gets to some people and not others - then watch out the lawyers are
ready to have a field day with you and your Company.
Chris takes his job in has hand anytime he posts something here. He also
takes his job in his hand anytime he sends a PM to anyone. I'm sure his
responses are well thought out to HELP and SUPPORT us all without
getting himself or Pioneer or a partner Company in trouble. There are times
when he does not respond. That doesn't mean he is ignoring you - but he
probably can not respond - FOR LEGAL REASONS.
My only advice is - lets be happy Chris can contribute and not push any
envelopes that would endanger that contribution.
As a current CEO and former board member of a PUBLIC Company - what
we say can get us ALL FIRED at any level in a Company. I have only been
fired 5 times - So I know first hand. It is NEVER FUN!
