Looked at it, but it was a bit pricey and I attended the shareholder meeting this year so think I'll be passing on this.

I'd be curious to know more about their stake in Blackberry (17% common equity ownership if I remember right) if there's a Q/A. I recently sold a big chunk of my holdings while Watsa was buying more.

Would you guys be able to post your notes and observations from this?  I would be very interested to read them.
