1) Do you know how the Rackspace solution stacks up against our
requirements?  Obviously the price is right, but will they provide any
support?  Will this help offload Larry's support to OWASP or will it just
make things more difficult for him?

2) I like the concept of getting someone to facilitate identifying some
goals for the board.  I suspect that this will massively derail the meeting
though.  Should we schedule some specific time just for this discussion?

I have a couple of items for the DC board meeting.  I will be adding these
(and some more details) to the agenda over the weekend.

(1) I have a tentative "hand-shake" agreement from the CSO of Rackspace for
them to provide OWASP hosting on their cloud infrastructure in exchange for
a corporate membership + some verbiage along the lines of "hosted by
Rackspace Cloud" on the www.owasp.org.  There are still specific details to
work out but it looks my second go at Rackspace is going to solve our
hosting issues.

(2) I have planned to have Richard Tesauro (my father) Skype into our board
meeting to discuss working with the board to define some short, medium and
long term goals.  I have mentioned this several times in the past and really
think its time to get this done especially with the Summit approaching in
2011.  I've attached his bio/vita to this email so you can get an idea of
his background.  He has agreed to do the work for a nominal hourly rate
(more then 80% off his normal rate) if the board truly wants to engage his
