I talked a day ago with a company that has talked to Mike about an executive role, and told them what I'll tell anyone who asks:
Hire him. Immediately. He's smart, pragmatic, and a huge asset to anyone lucky enough to interest him.
Welcome back, Mike. I won't say we've missed you, because you never really left, but welcome back all the same. It will be fun to see where you land. Round II, coming up.
