This may be wildly off-base, and is pure speculation on my part - but could Erik be getting involved with Knol?

The timing is certainly appropriate, it would seem to fit the step-up wording, and would also explain why Florence throws in that otherwise inexplicable paragraph about Knol being our enemy into what was an announcement about some board changes. (Unless Florence is in the habit of throwing into such announcements whatever is on her mind at the time, of course....)
