    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.

    Whether Kodak is going to survive doesn't matter to me now. Perez managed to turned my 1000 shares of Kodak stock into nothing and now if it survives I won't get my money back and it won't make my film. So it really doesn't matter to me any more.

    Sadly, the new Kodak is pretty much just an emotional reminder of the past.

    The signs say Kodak, many of the buildings are the same. It is almost like meeting someone who could almost be a twin of a departed loved one.

    So much is so familiar. But when you look close, they are still gone.

    My favorite impossible revenge fantasy is that Alaris grows to the point that it buys and takes over the rest of the company. Ushering in a new age of my favorite romanticized and idealized memories of what never really was. :sad:

    I was at SPE in Baltimore with a booth right beside Kodak Alaris.


    Most bizarre situation that I still cannot figure out, all the guy did was collect business cards by giving out a roll or two of film, His booth was swamped with students lining up for a free roll of film. Ok this makes kind of sense, collect names for future marketing??? not what I think is the best way to spend marketing money.

    I could not engage the rep in conversation as he was too busy handing out film and by the end of two days was not interested in talking to him as
    he obviously was not there talking Kodak products other than the free film give away.
    I did not get the sense that anything was coming down the pipeline in terms of Kodak products , other than they have a bucket full of film to get rid of.

    He would start his spiel by WHO SHOOTS FILM then make them stand like lemmings to get a free roll, this was very strange marketing and promotion , as
    there was no information other than a chance to get a roll of film.

    I heard from other vendors that this is going on at all photoevents and this guy is there handing our single rolls, of colour , black and white in different sizes.
