I worked for a prominent software company in the 90s that was approached by one of their competitors with an offer. The offer was for the competitor to sell their entire operation to my company with the hopes of forming a larger, more powerful company. The offer was made very quietly and in good faith. The president of my company put out an angry press release denouncing the offer. Many at the company were confused until we learned that he was actively working to sell our company to another major software company. Why did he want to be acquired rather than do the acquiring? Because his mentor ran the company he wanted to sell to.

Because of this, any of the employees at tr.im who are confused over the events of the last 10 days have my sympathies as I know what they are going through.
