I'm actually really surprised there wasn't a formal blog entry on this! Matt's really a part of the community across the site, and not everyone visits Deals.woot.

Because Woot hasn't changed enough? Sigh.

My speech is not parsing. I am speaking in ellipsis.

he already sold the thing, i saw one estimate of $110 million, i wonder if he was the sole owner. how many cheeseburgers would that buy, and how many could you eat anyway? i wonder what his salary was.

That was my point, really. Sold it and stayed on for what purpose? Contractual obligation until a proper transition could be implemented?

iirc, amazon wanted to learn how woot did its thing. i imagine as a condition of the sale there was a contractual obligation for the major players to stay on for a while, until amazon sucked all the knowledge it could from woot. then the changes to the amazon way and the peeps were free to go, if they want.

It will be interesting to see how many of the other staff (that we know and love) will either be leaving or let go.

they still have writeups and mods and prolly lots of codework to do, so those jobs are still there, but i wonder how many of the st louie crowd miss home.
and if any of the peeps who had to move to seattle miss their autonomy.

i wonder how long until gatzby has to wear a tie to work.

i wonder what davebug's role in the company is now.
