Feed search company Feedster has parted ways with its CTO and founder Scott Johnson as of this morning. Scott’s final papers were faxed to Feedster from the Technorati office! I spent this morning with Scott and I can tell you this was not of his will or a pleasant process.
I’ve known Scott for a few years. Scott has split his time over the past year between Feedster’s headquarters in San Francisco and his wife, son, and home in Indiana. I think once some dagger wounds heal Scott will be much happier on his next project.
What’s next? Scott said if he’d love to start a company to sell pre-configured MythTV boxes but does not want to put his family through the legal troubles involved with shaking up a large industry. He’s very interested in making complex technical problems easy for end users and I am sure his next project will involve simplifying technology in some form.
Good luck Scott!
