Evan Williams is leaving Blogger/Google. Wow. I have to say that I totally appreciate the sentiments in his post. This industry grinds you. Launching projects grinds you. Starting companies grinds you. For all this grinding, there is a lot of fulfillment that comes from building things and seeing people interact with them. I think I’ve learned, over the years of working in this field, a way to manage my energy levels that works for me. Evan is a smart guy, and a really nice one. I hope he finds the recharge he is looking for. I don’t think it is a coincidence that his former Pyra co-founder also decided to step away from “the business” recently.
