Conflicts of Interest at the X PRIZE Foundation

The X PRIZE Foundation's recent blog post about the potential conflicts of interest relating to Armadillo Aerospace and the Rocket Racing League shed some more light on how they will manage potential conflicts of interest between the numerous and sometimes overlapping activities of its chariman and founder, Peter Diamandis.
One must admire the vision and drive that Diamandis puts into his passion of progressing the field of space exploration, and particularly finding and proving new commercial models for space activites. However, a quick tour of his wikipedia page will show that he is, and has been, involved in an enormous number of projects and organisations.

This is a list of only his current roles:
Wikipedia also shows a long list of other roles he's had in the past.

Oh Peter, what a tangled space web we weave...

We wish you well in your struggles to keep a legal arms-length in the transactions of all of your activities!

(By the way, if you haven't done so yet, you must check out the promotional video on the Rocket Racing League website! Is this going to be the new Formula 1, or NASCAR?)
