Interesting Changes at TOC

The much-hailed George de Feis has parted company with The Objectivist Center — after only six months as chief operating officer. According to the announcement Paul and I (and other sponors) received, the staff reductions due to budget constraints this year “reduced the need for a fulltime manager at his level.” More interestingly, the announcement notes that “it had also become clear that his particular skills and experience were not the best fit for our mission.” I wonder what that means… and whether it has anything to do with the allegations that he seriously mismanaged the US Chess Federation as its executive director.

TOC seems lost to me these days. From my (admittedly very much outside) perspective, they don’t seem to be doing much except Navigator and the Summer Seminar. And that’s just not enough.

Update: Due to serious philosophic and moral objections, I am no longer associated with The Objectivist Center in any way, shape, or form. My reasons why can be found on my web page on The Many False Friends of Objectivism.
