Allison Fine, one of the authors of The Networked Nonprofit described an uninformed, disconnected, and disengaged non-profit board that resonated perfectly with what I have been seeing and writing about the Open Source Matters, Inc. board. She said in her blog:

Most of all, too many boards are sets for kabuki theater; set dramas where all the actors know their lines; the chair gives an opening, the chief executive provides a summary of all the recent successes, the treasurer talks about the growing deficit, and the committee chair report out on their laundry lists of activities and programs. The meeting adjourns two hours later with very little accomplished except for a sense by the participants that they have done what they’re supposed to do.!
