Questions any Geeknet (GKNT) non-insider and former employee/officer/Director shareholder should be asking.
1. Did Kenneth Langone throw the baby out with the bath water since his arrival?
2. Why hasn't he strategically spun-off the open-source assets to Amazon, Best Buy, IBM, Oracle, Red Hat, Yahoo! in a bidding war?
3. Why does Kenneth Langone want to create the impression everything is falling apart by not updating geek.net, effectively the entrance to all Geek.net assets and all shareholder value? This is a substantive smoking gun. [See Sarbanes Oxley, Full Disclosure, EMH, SEC Rule 10b-5,...]
4. With all due respect does Kenneth Langone really understand web 2.0+ technologies? Open-Source? high-tech? or is this a last gasp attempt to prove something he can't possibly prove?...at the expense of [everyone] else? [See 6.]
5. Why is Kenneth Langone loading the Geeknet (GKNT) Board of Directors with nothing more than bodies and arguably to some whom are effectively unemployed/retired, and arguably completely out of touch with Geeknet's reality?
A: To control 67% of the Board?
5a. And for what reason?
A: To summarily approve whatever plan he has?
6. Why did Kenneth Langone's say the following as his parting comments on the Q2 ending June 30, 2010 conference call held on August 4th at [15:30/18:09] ? "...Matt Sweeney is very excited about the opportunities on the sales and marketing side...". After Langone's firings Geeknet (GKNT) shareholders are now left with Matt Sweeney as Chief Revenue Officer whose sole background is in media and marketing services with ComputerWorld, InfoWorld (IDG) and Ziff-Davis who "...managed $30M+ in print/online sales for PC Magazine, the largest computer publication in the world with $60M in revenues....". This is less than Geeknet's current revenues. A second substantive smoking gun.
