Wow Viv, Nick and Pierre that’s some serious experience lost in a short period.
I’ve left companies because I did not agree with change in direction so I get it.
But that is a high level of disagreement, surely at this stage of the game they must really feel the changes are detrimental to the timeline?
But from what we are told it is all done to speed launch up.
Time will tell, no pun intended.
@nicklambert man, I will legit miss you. You have been at this for so long and I always thought it’d still be the same crew setting off to launch. If there was ever a better time to leave it probably is now though given the immense progress and clearer path forward. I wish you well and hope to see you around, also @Viv as well.
@pierrechevalier83 you really brought us something no one else could have. Much like Andreas Fackler you came in and helped solve some of SAFE’s biggest R&D problems. Your friendliness and openness in responding on the forum tells me you’re a real great guy as well, sad to see you go. But! I hope you can still pop in and see us again much like Andreas has done.
Take care fellas.
I am happy to see such competent folks taking in the new rolls @dugcampbell @Nadia. I’ve really noticed @Nadia has brought an organization to such a huge project that was definitely missing before and Dug is a helluva speaker and charismatic guy, so I think we’re still in good hands. This one and @Viv hit me like a ton of bricks.
Very sad to see two experienced core members in Nick and Pierre going. I wish them both well in whatever they choose to do next. Best wishes to @dugcampbell and @Nadia on their elevation to the board. The emphasis on Marketing now is a sensible move.
Was @dirvine giving us a wee hint here in The Libera Manifesto (Open Source) ? In any case https://github.com/shellscape/LiberaManifesto/blob/master/index.md is worth reading.
Yes it’s a tough shift in maidsafe at times, lots of hard work and lots of people have done the hard shifts. These guys are no exception. It is a real shame when folk leave, but we are an open source startup so we need to expect change. None of that takes away a thing from the guys ability or value whilst they are working with us. Everyone wants SAFE, just some want a different route from others, or think there are other ways to achieve SAFE.
We told the whole team today as we knew for a few weeks but wanted to get the whole plan in motion and board approvals and then ensure the team is in really good solid hands moving forward. It is, and we thank those guys for their work and continued work over the next few weeks and months, it has been a pleasure to have them alongside us and a shame when we do eventually say goodby.
Now there is a network we need to launch so back to it for all of us. SAFE is bigger than any person, company or team. It is a dream that turned into a deep desire by many for a better world. Time to deliver that dream is now, so lets do just that.
I hope there is nothing untoward going on with these resignations. Seems some important people are leaving at a really exiting time???
Without a shadow of doubt everything is exactly as they say. They never lied to us. I have full confidence and vote with my money.
Thanks @Josh, @Nigel & @Southside for the kind words. The last couple of weeks have been pretty hectic - but no change there I can reiterate what @dirvine said - it’s always a shame when folk move on as with any startup (in terms of mentality here specifically) and the work from these guys has been awesome, no doubt about it. And now - the journey continues, as it must and as it will. As I mentioned earlier to someone, when you see projects like Libra starting to rear their head today, if nothing else, it brings sharply into focus once again just how high the stakes are here and how crucial it is for us to deliver a working alternative to that vision. We’ll get there
I probably should have been a little clearer, I meant untoward from external sources not maidsafe. Maybe I’m also looking at it from a personal perspective because if i was involved I don’t think I could leave a project of this magnitude until it was launched.
I want to second what Nigel wrote.
I get a little emotional when writing this, special thanks to Pierre for the contribution with Parsec, I know that there are very few people in the world that are capable of such accomplishments and I’am very humble and thankfull for those contributions.
I wish you guys would be here to the end, for better or worse, until this journey is completed. I hope that it is not the last time we see you and that we will hear from you guys and also maybe meet you in the future. Best of luck and wishes to both of you.
will there be any recruitment to replace Pierre in the routing team or is the current team big enough?
Lost for words…
Thanks for your hard working for several years.
Thanks for your future harding working for several future years.
lots of irons in the fire. We will recruit where the project shows us we need more progress. More than that in recruitment, but @pierrechevalier83 is a big figure to replace, that won’t be quick, however, we are always looking.
Congratulations to @dugcampbell and @Nadia on the very much deserved promotions. Make sure that Nick gives you the key to that executive washroom behind the secret panel in the Directors office - they think we don’t know… we know!
Changes in a road-map causes people to leave? Looks barely different to me. People leaving is fine, and I can’t truly question the given reason; but ‘schedule change’ still is ‘crazy’ as a reason… to me.
