A friend of mine, Eric Engstrom who I quote occasionally, just sold his company to AOL. As Ry put it in an email to me, he “escapes again”. Ry and I both used to work for Eric at Chromium Communications. I was his first employee at Chromium. Chromium morphed into Gitwit and then into Wildseed in a series of restructurings. The details of the sale aren’t public but I hope Eric gets enough out of it to pay off his debts and at least get back the money he put into it–which was a lot.
