I don't think that that was Dave's point really. I don't doubt that
Dick has the contacts, but that is beside the point of whether or not
he has a conflict of interest.

Personally I believe that, sure, there's a Conflict of Interest, but
it's also likely that any other hypothetical Speaker to Suits will
also have a similar conflict of interest.

So the question becomes: Do we want an official speaker to suits?

My answer: Yes, probably. 

Piers, who doesn't work for ActiveState, The Perl Clinic or any
similar organization.
