Key ASF board members resign over dispute with Tom Deutsch, the executive director. My favorite quote from the Bloomberg article was the "who spoke on condition of anonymity because the dispute isn't public"... mmmkay.
He had to know this was coming, and has already faced a prior defections from other board members who were concerned with things such as transparency, executive pay, and supervision over executive decisions. At some point you need to step aside when key members of your organization are quitting over a failure to communicate effectively with you. I'd be interested in others' thoughts, but from my outsider point of view, it seems like it might time for Deutsch to pull the golden parachute and float to safety.
Is the conference canceled?
