    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...

    "There is very limited audience for the arty stuff, and it is largely comprised of other arty types, most of whom have no money to spend because no one is buying their stuff either. More people bring their emotions to an image than bring their intellect. The former are the folks who have checkbooks because they are engineers, accountants, and bankers—and generally they are engineers, accountants and bankers because they are not artists."

    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.

    Kodak Alaris has to generate millions and millions of dollars to pay their pensioners. Surely they will keep the film rolling no?

    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.
