Right right... forgot they not only share a CEO position but they share a chairman of the board position...

Anyways, yes Jim and Mike need to kind of step back, this isn't some little company with big dreams anymore. They (Mike especially) are way too emotionally involved which has blinded their ability to keep the company going.

If anything Mike and Jim are already on enough other boards in Waterloo... (IQC, PI, CIGI all institutes they fund)

All the rest of you keep making fun of me all you want. I'll reiterate this is a rumor section so why some of you chose to be assholes and mock me is a little confusing.... of course it is the internet so it isn't really unexpected.
