Damn, I know both Amanda and Andrew and this came out of left field for me (she announced on
a new her videoblog titled “Amanda Unboomed” that she’s leaving the popular RocketBoom).
Digg, of course, has tons of comments. I really hate how people treat people online. The sexism that leaks into forums is just sickening.
Update: the best, and most thoughtful comments are on blogs. Memeorandum rocks again. I am really starting to hate anonymous comments. They are always the worst and I rarely learn something from someone who isn’t willing to sign his or her name to their text.
Update 2: I just deleted a part of my post. It’s clear that Amanda and Andrew are in pretty deep pain (I just read more about what was behind this). Instead of trying to take advantage of this professionally just wanted to say I’m saddened by this, and offer my support for whatever path Amanda and Andrew take in the future.
Update 3: Om Malik says I should hire her. Heheheh, maybe I should go on Rocketboom as guest host? Nah, that’d scare away the audience for sure!
Update 4: Jason Calacanis makes her an offer to be the public face of Netscape.
Update 5: Dave Winer wrote “what we do and don’t know about Rocketboom.” It’s a good note to read and consider, since Dave’s been hanging out with Andrew a bit lately.
