I assumed this is a request for possible alternative representation. Devin
appeared to be geographically close to at least you(again my assumption). Is
that an important consideration in finding someone to fill his role? Is
face-to-face contact necessary/desirable with those boost members who have
been closely involved in the licensing efforts?

Thanks, Jeff
