Facebook co-founder Dustin Moskovitz calls it quits
Parting is such sweet sorrow...bitch
Facebook co-founder Dustin Moskovitz said today he's leaving the company along with engineering manager Justin Rosenstein to start a new software business.
Moskovitz was Mark Zuckerberg's roommate at Harvard University when they founded the social networking website while still students. His work at Facebook has mostly been out of the public eye — although he'd occasionally show up for various project debuts like the Facebook for Blackberry app.
In a message left on his Facebook page, Moskovitz said he and Rosenstein have been working on business software for Facebook.
"But at some point it became clear that doing so wouldn't be good for Facebook or for us," he wrote.
Moskovitz stated he would be leaving the company in about a month.
"Dustin has always had Facebook's best interest at heart and will always be someone I turn to for advice," Zuckerberg said in a statement. ®
I'd have bailed out after the makeover too. Sensible chap.
Im taking your VC capital indirectly, Bitch...
yep. cutting and running before Facebook makeover II fails to generate revenue and the share price slaps through the floor.
Smart boy. buy him a coke, or something.
Distance yourself and grab the money before Facebook's worth becomes more realistic.
