Coldest goodbye email – DimDim. Congrats nevertheless.

DimDim Acquisition email

Must be the coldest goodbye mail ever. Almost ‘talk-to-my-hand’ esque rebuttal. Bad open source contribution in spite of using the FOSS mantra for the few initial months – helped massively in the coverage against WebEx. I hope this FOSS misuse will stop.

Nevertheless, this is great news for the Indian product ecosystem. I hope the early employees too had some good exit in addition to the founders. Still remember their first appearance at Barcamp Hyderabad 1 in IIIT-H pitching their first ideas.

Congrats to all at DimDim.
