"In an unexpected move, Matt Asay, Chief Operating
Officer (COO) for Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu Linux, will
be leaving Ubuntu.
"In an e-mail to me, Asay, former VP of Business Development at
Alfresco, the open-source enterprise Content Management System
(CMS), told me that the news of his depature from Canonical would
be be announced internally at Canonical today, December 8th.
"Asay is leaving Canonical, because "Basically, I needed to get
back to a customer-facing role but hadn't realized that until my
good friend, Bryce Roberts, pinged me about a company he had
invested in (Strobe). I hadn't been looking around but agreed to
meet with Charles [Jolley], the founder.""
