month think about what you've done, what you're doing, where you're going, and prepare to answer any question that the board might ask. And that's very good for you. That's a restraint on management that's very good. Because if you know that somebody is going to ask you a question about x, you've got to be able to say, “Yes, I know the answer”--or, when you don't, be prepared to say, “No, I don't, but I hope I will within three months, or six months”--or something like that. So that's really why a board is useful.

The other night I played bridge--three people and a computer. And the computer played bridge just as well as we did! It could read the cards, too. [laughs] And to some extent the board can--you know, it's a necessary fourth party to the game.


Okay. Let's stop here for today because I know that you have to go. End tape.
