That does sound well managed, but the net effect will be to place a woman presumably new-ish to the industry (or at least Green Ronin) under the developmental mentorship of someone that the whisper network warns about as a harasser, possible anti-semite, and work appropriator. Maybe it's too high-profile for abuses to happen there, but at the very least it provides thicker cover for someone who's already being talked about as a bad egg.That talent search was not just run by CA; he was one of a team including Nicole. All submissions were rendered anonymous and names replaced with serial numbers, and none of the panel knew the identity of any of the applicants. Green Ronin set it up like that to remove any interpersonal bias before the accusation against CA came out.
I am seriously impressed by how they did it, actually, and when I start my own company I'm doing Open Calls like that.
