Zend Readying for a Buyout?
May 19, 2008 @ 20:08:13

According to some details over on TechCrunch there's a few rumors being started that Zend ("the PHP company") is looking to sell.

Israeli startup Zend Technologies has fired 25 percent of its R&D team (at least ten people), as well as others across the company, in an attempt to become cash flow positive, says a source close to the company.

  • When it comes to developer relations, (just about) no question or comment should be dismissed.
  • The alternative to constantly tooting one's own horn is not total horn silence.
  • The old saw is true: "all publicity is good publicity."

For each, he gives a little background, mentioning the real motivation behind Ning's methods and differing ideas...
