Too pissed off to sleep. That’s a good start to the day.
Awake with 3 hours sleep under belt. Shall not operate heavy machinery.
@pbur watch this space. More tweeting this afternoon I’m sure.
Lack of sleep, too much caffeine, adrenaline, a schwahican and a sense of indignation are a powerful combo!
Might need to relax a bit. Taking BART steps 8 at a time
At sightglass coffee. Still furious but have given “leadership” a piece of my mind. Taming fury with overpriced coffee. (3rd time the charm)
So in case you didn’t get the memo. Entire team laid off. 3 devs, 1 designer, 1 writer. Some of THE best people I’ve ever worked with…
Irony: watch the current iPad tv spot for our app and look at the iPad billboards (all us). We made that.
@njp here for a while. Upstairs. Spot the guy with a bad Mohawk, an iPad and fuming angry as hell ;-)
@schwa Ugh. Fucking sucks, man. Sorry to hear it.
@pbowden to be honest I was about to bitch quit anyway…
Follow up. Thanks for the well wishes. Contact me jwight@mac if you are looking for iOS devs, designers, and writers.
And to be frank this is the best thing, it became apparent that we were spiraling the drain.
Would love if the entire team could get snapped up by someone. Really is an awesome fucking team. Totally squandered where we were.
How the hell do you not make money with an app that’s perpetually in the top 100? http://t.co/TA8DEBVP
Friends at twitter hosting the dearly departed for a free lunch http://t.co/MvZb6HIR
1st sign of the coming Mobile App bust? http://t.co/MOSXryAy If #99 Best Selling App can't make it, what are the odds 4 the other .0001%?
@AbbiV IMO more a sign that you can’t ignore costs.
@Timburks C'mon! It's in Top 99.9999% of ALL Apps. If that ranking can't support a co w/ offc space & rent, then we're all in trouble :-o
@AbbiV I heard they bought and renovated their building.
Battery down to 7% from fully charged this morning. Amazing things are afoot already. Making the best motherfucking lemonade
@Timburks Oh- didn't know that :-[ Knowing SF Real Estate mkt, I bet they make more $ thro RE than selling iPhone Apps :-P Topic 4 a Meetup?
All good things begin with beer. http://t.co/nTAc5oV8
@AbbiV Heh, maybe "knowing your employer's business model" /cc @schwa
Accomplishment achieved. Received sympathy from a panhandler at West Oakland BART. “I understand sir.”
@timburks @AbbiV oh how I wish I could say more :-) over beer
Y'all are so cute when you project your hopes, dreams, and ideals onto venture-backed companies.
@iTod I keep telling people! We’re self funded and haven’t taken a penny of VC money! Oh wait.
@jordanekay @iTod I’m still bummed I forgot to stuff my pockets with excess twitter bacon. My family has to eat this week!
