Spent several hours researching it, still could not figure out their business model (zero financial background - knew a guy who hooked me up with the interview), figured screw it. Took down detailed notes and went into the interview.
After a few preliminary questions they said "Ok, what do you know about our organization and what we do?" I pulled out this single page of yellow legal pad paper totally filled with scribbles that i'm sure were illegible to anyone else and said "well, i honestly have no idea, but this is what I could figure out" and just started talking.
The senior in house counsels mix of horror and annoyance was actually kind of funny.
Asking the guy who set up the interview would have been a step too far?
