Probably not the answer you want to hear here. But what I have learned in the past two years is that too many cooks in the kitchen is a bad idea. What I have also learned and already knew for quite some time given I have been involved in the past in the biggest tech community in the Netherlands, is that written communication is always harder than personal communication. For that I will be doing more online voice and video meetings with stakeholders. In the first few months I will probably hold a monthly session to inform people about progress and answer any questions they have.

Let me clarify where I'm coming from. The Director has a lot of overlap with the current grant system, but the scope is bigger. Instead of you being accountable for your own grants and its progress, you will be responsible for and coordinating the efforts of multiple parties, with far more resources.

So what I'm really asking is how we prevent past situations where the grants you represented suffered from communication issues and how you intend to rectify this in a Director role. It has very little to do with too many cooks in the kitchen. These same issues can plague a council-director relationship where either funds stop getting released or one side gets bullied into submission.

Here's one example:

I will say that:

Is a good first step. But leave out [I]'in the first few months'[/I] and '[I]probably' - [/I]otherwise it sounds like a very soft commitment.

Sphereon is both a shareholder in and developer of Off-Blocks, which in turn has relations to Colin and Federate This in this protocol. That's it.

While it sets a bad precedent, I have a feeling the majority may accept this for an interim term out of necessity, but for the future I wouldn't be comfortable with a Director having financial ties to multiple ANOs that are supposed to oversee the role. In any case, I'd expect them to abstain during important votes (election, removal). Do you agree?

Continuing on this, will you still act on BIF's behalf when it comes to responding to standing votes?
