Chances are, you are in the loop about the joke of an attempt at a shareholder meeting that happened recently. Well I received shortly thereafter, by snail-mail, the so-called “meeting minutes” (not linking to the docs yet due to a colleague having been caught in the crossfire). I promptly responded with a polite, but firmly righteous outrage over the whole thing.
So what does all this mean?
Amtrak Train. Diner cart. I stand up dazed and angry. Random lady sitting some tables back, as I pass by:
“Are you ok? I saw you were watching…”
Uhm… no, lady. I am not. But thank you for asking. I have to pee, please watch my computer. I walk over to the bathroom. In a daze, somewhat relieved of reality, I walk back, four pairs of eyes, including the lady, commiserating. We chat. Group therapy just short of a collective hug.
Quick update: filed an appeal (petition for review) a few days ago with the Appeals Court in Boston: apparently, the court is now looking into getting an electronic system in place. Curious how it (electronic system) will pan out – should be good for everyone.
On a related note, spoke to an attorney, who suggested that I stop blogging.

Why did I decide to blog:
So, I’ve already blogged about how I almost got thrown in jail for effectively attempting to get an explanation. Now am preparing an appeal. Again, confusing. Should have really appealed the initial ruling, but kept hoping to see our justice system in action… so am doing this with more motions in the process… Still, it’s good for me to learn how this process works. Knowledge-dump on appeals here.
Observation: from what I see and hear – everyone seems to know everyone in lower courts resulting in all sorts of politics, “favors”, and bad judgments. Hard to explain Judge Curran’s and Judge Budd’s judgments otherwise. That said, I heard that things get better as one moves up the appeals process…
However, it seems that public accountability is a pretty important element, which brings me to the next question: Continue reading
Time to give a little bit of context for how I got frozen out. Three founders: Moshe Pritsker, Nikita Bernstein, and Klaus Korak. Moshe has the idea. Nikita joins to build. Klaus joins to fund after initial traction.
First briefly about each founder, and then what had happened.
So, since Fung Wah and Lucky Star are both suspended, discovered some new services.
