Three months ago I reported a huge downdraft hitting ClearOne.  This quarter isn't much different.  The company reported total revenues for the quarter of $11.7M, down from $13.0M a year earlier.  Net income on a GAAP basis fell from +$1.37M to -$0.47M.  The ProAudio product line, which accounts for approximately 75% of the revenues, was down 15% year over year.

Balletta’s departure closely follows the resignation of TalkPoint’s vice president of marketing Dan Roche, who left the company at the end of March to conclude his own 17-year run at TalkPoint.

I met Yoav Nir at an industry trade show about 5 years ago where he was demonstrating a prototype of Barco’s ClickShare.  This was a new product in an entirely new direction for Barco and was destined to take the Belgian company into WR’s collaboration space.  It was the first time I experienced such technology enthusiasm from a Belgian national. 

WRB:  Is it true that people in Europe consider you to be the godfather of ClickShare.  And how does that reputation affect your personal life.
