The key player here is Michael O'Leary, who was already a VP, but will take on an expanded role. You may recall O'Leary from his laughable attempt to pretend that censoring the internet via PROTECT IP is part of the American way.
What's really sad is that if either of these organizations actually brought in folks with a tiny bit of insight into where the opportunities are actually happening in their world today, we might actually see some progress, rather than the tactic of pretending that you can break the internet to save the business models of a few legacy companies who don't want to bother innovating. I have to admit that I have trouble understanding the minds of people who seek to hold back progress and prop up dead business models, but apparently it pays well for the time being.
