The role of MSL principals

We've been asked about what role the principals in MSL (John Walker and Dan Drake) will play in the partnership. They will participate in the operation of the company and share its results by virtue of their ownership and operation of MSL. In addition, they may choose, as individuals, to become limited partners in the venture. They would do so based on their desire to work, exactly like other limited partners, on technical projects to be marketed by Marin Software Partners. If they do so (and I certainly haven't made up my mind--I want to, but where is the time to come from?), they will buy their shares just like anybody else and participate on the same basis.

This is an issue that isn't settled yet, and I don't think it's very important until we see just who's interested.
