Sad to say it, but today is my last day as CTO of Woot. With much sad deliberation, I’m moving off back into the mothership to work on Amazon Web Services stuff. It’s not you. It’s me. Actually it’s @davejlives. But he can’t know that. 3 Then he wins.
I have never had more fun in my life than the last 4 and change years! Most importantly, YOU! I have never had more fun with customers in my working life. You are dedicated, passionate, sometimes supremely pissed off, always entertaining, and made me z feel like more than just some crappy middle manager in the borg ecosystem of Amazon. You are amazing, and made it really easy to wake up and get my sorry butt into work every day, and made it REALLY REALLY REALLY hard to decide to leave. I’ll still be on the forums, albeit without the Woot Staff logo or any real power. But you know TT has all the real power anyway, yeah?
Since it is the LAST DAY OF SCHOOL for me, expect some pranks and surprises on the site today. I was in Dallas last week and raided TT’s BoC stash. I cannot d confirm or deny that there is a sale of them live now. Right now. About 50 BoCs. Hiding in plain sight - with www.woot.com slash something. You’re welcome, if you dare. If you can work out the URL. I love you all, but keep being loud, proud Wooters who complain about the WORST WOOTOFFS EVER, the c DEALS BEING BETTER ON AMAZON, MISSING THE OLD WOOT, SUCKS SINCE AMAZON BOUGHT US, 5 WHY ARE BIDETS IN GARDEN TOOLS, and everything you do on here a to make this little site what it is. And download . the app, because otherwise @Ajit31415 will cry. r
Always a Wooter!
PS - I will do some streaming today
