Erik Moeller (yes, that Erik Moeller
) makes it sound like
Danese Cooper was so easily replaceable, that she doesn't even need replacement!
"I’m taking on the role of VP of Engineering and Product Development,
on an interim basis for now. We’re not going to immediately hire
either for that role or a CTO role. Thanks to Mark, Tim and Brion, we
have very strong architectural leadership in the department. Moreover,
we’ve got more than enough disruptive change as an engineering
organization to absorb for now, so we’ve decided that it doesn’t make
sense to immediately bring in a new person to lead the department."
Enjoy your last few days of superfluousness, Danese!

...about why Brion Vibber would be willing to return, given that he'll be reporting to Danese Cooper and not Erik Moeller...
Guess who Brion's reporting to now?
Not Erik Moeller?
I found this very funny old (Jan 2008) org chart, which has Erik working DIRECTLY UNDER Sue, despite the fact that as Deputy Director he doesn't have (on this chart) any other responsibilities than to buffer the CTO, which at that time was indeed Brion. So he should really go on the top of that stack, rather than DIRECTLY UNDER Sue.
Now that Danese has been lateralized, no doubt due to Brion's return, why is it that he doesn't get his old title back from her? What am I missing?http://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/File:W...f_org_chart.svg
