    I just read your article about Board of Directors and Board of Advisors. It was very timely (personally speaking). We have been having a debate amongst the directors for about two months now. I am in favor of setting up a BOA; your article helped me get the others to agree to it in concept.
    I really like your advice about tightly bounding the activities of Advisors so that the company’s needs don’t become a time-sink.
