You might have heard about our french blogzine dedicated to the blogosphere, Pointblog, without doubt the most popular french one.
Launched in 2003 as a personal initiative, PointBlog became a company recently.
Today, the original founder announced he is leaving (title of his post : "Without me") and pointing out the bad administrative management and the lack of consideration for the team by the head of the company.
I don't have any information allowing me to take any position here, I hope Pointblog will survive to this crisis, it would be really sad to loose it.
On a corporate blogging point of view, this is an interesting point to see that the founder (co-founder in this case) of a company is announcing his departure on the blog itself, making by this way a strict application of "transparency" so precious to the blogosphere.
But I am wondering....
He didn't just announced he left the company, he gave the reason of his departure and directly pointed out one men's responsibility. Did he go one step too far ? Should he have tell the whole story on the company's blogzine... Well, it's not so easy to answer I am afraid... In my deep thoughts, I would rather not have gone so far, but on the other hand, as he is the founder of this blogzine, everyone would have asked for the exact reason of his leaving...
I'd leave the question open.
Update: One more thing: the founder, Cyril, is selling is shares on his blog...
