Drat. Just when I was first finding out what Rocketboom was.

Baron's explanation: "It's just like a marriage -- there are problems, and over time they just don't get addressed, and it just gets bigger until there's a loss of communication ... It was starting to seem pretty desolate, and I woke up in the morning and she had sent an e-mail to the field list with a link to her video -- that was kinda the indication that she had given up and that it was over ... We had been in negotiations trying to work everything out. Amanda came to the table with one proposal, and is not willing to budge."

Congdon's explanation: "It's been rocky -- communication with Andrew is a difficult process for me, and for a lot of other people. It's something we tried and tried to work on, but we never seemed to be able to make it work ... I'm not interested in Rocketboom unless he changes his view of partnership."

Winer's thoughts: "I feel really saddened by what's happened, and I don't think this is the end of it. I don't think it's one or the other. I think they need each other."

I don't know anything about Baron but I certainly don't get the "warm fuzzies" reading anythign Congdon had to say. Judging from what others have cited so far, I don't think she's as popular off-screen as she was on-screen.


In this new media world, private spats are done online and through vlogs too.

We will find out shortly whether Amanda is Rocketboom with a guest host next week.

I think this is the link to Dave Winer.
