Had fallen behind a bit on my blog reading, so it's only today that I learn Evan Williams has left Blogger/Google. I must admit I feel sad, even though I've never met him.
What I found interesting about his exit, however, is the fact that:
- he blogged about it on Evhead.com, and
- he posted a farewell message on Blogger News, which means there's no way that Blogger users could have missed it.
Most people who leave a company don't get a chance to make so graceful an exit; so from a PR standpoint, it sure seems like he's leaving Blogger/Google in good terms.
