    CEO's are chosen according to what college fraternity they belong to - who can potentially throw the best party? Frankly, if most of them simply stayed drunken, they'd do less damage to the companies they pretend to run.

    That is no longer the business of Mr. Cark and Kodak.
    I assume there are clauses in the contract that Kodak may not start on the field they just sold. The same time b&w paper business would be likely be that small that neither Kodak nor Kodak Alaris would bother anyway.

    Perhaps the biggest take-away here is that this thread and the Calumet out-of-business thread, both started yesterday within only five hours and seventeen minutes of each other, currently show 3,420 views for Calumet and only 653 views for the new Kodak CEO who is replacing Antonio Perez.

    Given the emotionally epic nature of earlier Kodak threads, I think this may speak volumes about the current residual levels of mindshare and perceived relevance of today's Kodak. At one point posters were at each other's throats over Kodak/Perez and the end-of-the-world. Now hardly a peep.

    Maybe it's because many still thought there was a chance to right the ship back then, but no chance now?

    I guess that boat has not only already sailed. It sank.

    Ken, I think it's because Kodak is no longer what we were talking about. That place has been taken by Kodak Alaris. And there really isn't much coming out of them for us to talk about.

    Yeah, that was my point. The ship sank. And the silence is eerie...

    They did with Dan Carp. He started with Kodak in 1970 and was president and CEO from 2000 to 2005 (between Fisher and Perez and he wasn't any better than either of them).

    They went directly from a Fisher to a Carp-- scaling down, perhaps?
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    I hope for the best, but don't have much confidence.
    Based to the profile linked earlier, it looks like Clarke's early engagements were more about disassembling once vital companies into acquisition pieces, rather than building them up.
    I hope I am wrong though, we'll see.

    He's keeping his family and home in California and will do his job in upstate NY. Real commitment.

    Considering what is left of Kodak.... By rights it really should only be a part time job.
