    Who's at the helm of SGI?

    Does anyone know if McCraken is still the CEO of SGI? If not, who is navigating the ship?

    In a press release from 12/4 (class action) I saw that he was fired, but still, I saw his name on a release from SGI from 12/16 (cooperation with MS).

    • The "ship" would be better off with nobody navigating.
      This stock will not increase until the board stops talking about it and finally gets rid of McCracken. Nothing has changed!!!

      • I saw him alive and well about 9:00pm EST, two days ago, on Bloomberg TV news. I believe it was stated that the position of
        CEO was vacant, but that McCracken was Chairman of The Board or President. He certainly seems to be the spokesman and seems to
        be running the show. Can I ask, is he really that bad? I'm a newcomer to SGI. I remember,not to long ago, BAY NETWORKS dumped
        their CEO and replaced him with a respected EXEC. from Intel.....I saw BAY shoot 5 points in several days ...just on the
        announcement. Heres hoping that they are sincerely trying to find a suit able replacement.

    • McCracken is "gone" officially, but he is staying on voluntarily as CEO until a replacement is found. Damn nice of him, eh?

      IF you are going to buy SGI right now, be careful. This quarter might not have been stellar. Perhaps wait till the #s come out - then buy.
