I have found Mr Lacey's CCs generally encouraging. It seems like his permanent appointment is an owner-friendly development.
Of course, Mr Nothaft gave great CCs and the company got out of control during his tenure. I'd like to see the relative openness about legal matters continue, and a return of fairly regular boasting about the value of Tessera's products to the company web site. A dog-and-pony show every third year wouldn't be out of place either, and it would be appropriate soon. It would also be nice to see a rationalization of the division between 'root' Tessera and Invensas. (Actually, I'd like to see DOC spun off and Tessera renamed to Invensas, but anything that doesn't sort IP products by age would be an improvement).
