    I’m honestly confused by all the “concern” over the departures of some of the former Anso Lab crew. Think about it guys…they were part of an acquisition that I’m sure not everyone was thrilled about, they were not located at Rackspace HQ and therefore not immersed in the culture as most Rackspace employees and they were being wooed with offers from a former boss/colleague who can offer some lucrative benefits at this stage in his company.

    It’s not hard to see why this happened at all and I honestly don’t think it has anything to do with Rackspace directly or their culture. Nor do I think this will have any material impact on Rackspace. These guys were there for a relatively short period of time and likely had minimal impact on any internal projects within this timeframe (if any due to their focus on OpenStack directly).

    I’m not saying these aren’t great developers but who couldn’t see this coming a mile away? Rackspace has some sharp talent, this isn’t going to change anything for them and these folks will still be involved with OpenStack.

    Just my 2 cents as a former Racker looking in from the outside at this…
