Cooper, who has largely remained out of the technology spotlight compared to previous CTO Brion Vibber
One thing Brion had for him was pretty strong community support, if my memory serves me right (if not him, another one of those pushed-out old-timers). Danese has just been ... lurking. I mean, when was the last time you heard something big about her job? I'd hope that the CTO was more involved, or at least have some sort of presence in the community's spotlight.
In any case, this does seem like she disagreed over something important, and Sue decided to push her out. Good riddance. She wasn't bad
, probably just not as progressive as Sue prefers. And I wonder what Erik has to do with all this--at one point, I thought he was in danger of being forced out by Sue, as well. I wonder if he actually sided with her just to get on her good side.
