Talent Acquisitions marco.org

As usual, Marco Arment reflects on today’s acquisitions the best:

If you want to keep the software and services around that you enjoy, do what you can to make their businesses successful enough that it’s more attractive to keep running them than to be hired by a big tech company.

And, as usual, John Moltz says it funniest:

Of course, if Google or Facebook or Microsoft or Victor Von Doom showed up at my door with a big sack full of money and another sack full of blow and another sack full of hot cosplayers, rest assured I would jump into the car with them […]

I, perhaps, was a bit too much of a dick earlier. From a user’s perspective, this sucks. But, like Moltz, I probably wouldn’t say “no” if a giant offer were made at the right time.
