Inside The Collapsing Kibu
from the girl-power dept
I usually don’t post stories that are a few days old, but I just came across the following insider’s view of Kibu. It’s astounding. I cannot believe this company got as far as it did. I also take back earlier statements I made concerning Kibu and how they must have been smart enough to figure out how to do something with their money. While the story is from a disgruntled fired employee, I’m still amazed. It’s an example of the worst of dot com stupidity. Of course, most dot coms are not like this – but too many have elements of that culture in them.

This doesn’t sound like an embittered employee at all. In fact, if she hadn’t mentioned that she had been “unhired” (that word made me laugh every time I read it) at the end of the story, I would’ve thought she went down with the ship right at the end. Very interesting play by play of the company. I think she’s right about too much of the rah-rah attitude and not enough rah-rah business plan – I was beginning to think that businesses that have little to do with tech were even heading this way before last April, with everyone flying high on the markets.
