Feedster loses founder, CTO

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!
