I think this has two drawbacks

1) people will not bother to vote because it will seem like things are
already decided
2) people will wait till the end to vote to see wha the composition is so
they can have a "balanced" board.

I actually like Jon and Dan's original idea the most.  Elect the board in a
couple of increments.


Another issue:  How would the "no company should have majority" thing be
handeled with direct elections.   Perhaps: Only the most popular 5 (for an 11
member board) people from each company are considered.

Also.  How will we decide if some two people get the same amount of votes?
That is, if this would make us decide between two people.  Perhaps a "runoff"
would be needed.
