Sure, and I have "ambitions" to be a billionaire and known globally for my mad BMX skills.

This sounds more like they are trying to drive up their stock price than anything else.

Interesting article, Ralston is ambitious, I think however he has too many moving parts here with each requiring its own fuel (money). He is taking the entire industry and taking a shotgun approach i think it is much too broad and needs a bit of narrowing.
