Since Sue is available, let's get her back as co-executive director,
managing Brion Vibber as CTO. All three of them have been great in the
past, it will save huge amounts of money on searches, and going back to
proven roots will look great to donors. If they need additional support
they should hire people to advise them.
Trying to replace oneself with someone better is a highly modest
self-defeating behavior among top performing non-sociopaths. It needs to be
recognized as modest.
Did anyone have trouble filling out the Executive Director survey? I tried
but haven't been able to figure out some of the questions yet. I need to
scale the likert matrix in order to correctly represent my views, but there
is no way to do that without making some of the answers on the individual
items wrong. There has to be a better way to ask those same questions. I
want a question like, "is not likely to hire someone involved in
anticompetitive labor market abuse crimes."

Can we please also have Sue back as a co-executive director? I understand
she is still available.
