I have mixed thoughts about where this is headed, so I thought I'd air my concerns here.

Undeniably, someone has to take charge and get this kind of thing up and running, and I'm glad that there are people taking to it with enthusiasm.

But I'm disappointed that the ~1000 pledgers weren't consulted before the usual suspects were appointed. (I'm sure, if they had been, that nobody's involvement would have been contested, but it would look less like a super-secret special club).

I hope when it comes to collecting and spending our money, there is much more transparency and at least some opportunity for our representatives to be nominated by members/contributors rather than just appointed behind the scenes.

Encouraged by actions, disappointed by details...
