"DevCo" - One month after spin off announcement

From my perspective, a lot has happened in the past week since my last post.  Yesterday, I finished with the second “Board meeting” this week.  The first meeting was centered around fleshing out the DevCo operating organization, from development through marketing and sales.  We also discussed budgets and expenses.  Throughout a lot of these meetings you [...]
