An Open Letter to the former employees of AppCentral and Good Technology by Ken Singer
Masha Yudin stashed this in Generocity
"... the thing about culture is that we are all part of it. We are all responsible for its values and we can change them by choosing to reject what is readily accepted as normal. I refuse to participate in a compensation scheme that rewards only those who make decisions while taxing those who do all the work. I refuse to buy into the notion that as a founder, I deserve compensation when my employees received nothing (or worse). And I refuse to allow the end of our story to be about greed and the death of a unicorn. Team AppCentral, we are a phoenix--I will join you and your ventures when you're ready to rise again. "
I agree that every person contributes to culture, which includes shared values.
