    Does that mean the shareholder meetings will be held in Zuccotti Park? That's a long commute!

    I guess I'm illiterate when it comes to the terminology of the upper echelon of corporate structure...never heard the term "activist investor" or activist shareholder" before. Sounds a bit like they are hired to be the voice of the skeptic in their meetings, get them thinking outside their box. I'm thinking that might be a good thing, but then again, I'd never heard the term before today.
