On reading over your post a second time Hobo you do have a lot valid points but I just have a real difficult time comparing the company last year that existed and the company as it exists today. I think the options were directed at Taylor’s group for the most part thus the 1 year vest. From what I have been told those options to the UCONN Lab crew are both a reward and a retainer.
No one complained louder about this companies behaviour last year than me and no one complained louder at the AGM except for one individual who provided seed money during the start-up of this company. A guy from Boston who calls me from time to time. His brother was a co-founder.
I talked to Mark B quite a bit at the Lab and I think he is going to treat us right.
