I guess that's not really addressing the problem Eddy mentioned. Take
Google for example: DeWitt Clinton was representing Google as a
corporate board member while Eric Sachs was elected as a community
member of the board. Recently DeWitt resigned and Eric took his place.
First, there was need for a new community board member. Fine, though
by now almost all nominees for the community seats were or are board
Second, is Eric voicing different opinions as he represents Google
now? Or was he representing Google's opinion anyway while being a
community board member? I don't want to question Eric's integrity but
at least this raises questions about the independence of community
board members. So I support Eddy's motion.
