Here's the money quote (literally!):

"I explained these reservations at the very beginning of my relationship with Incisive, that I needed some long-term incentive for helping them continue to grow and strengthen the site and conferences. After over a year of talks, that's failed to materialize. As a result, I'm departing."

i guess danny just recognized, that working for a company that owns 100% of the things YOU established and not longer participating financially makes it less motivating to stick with it. (which makes perfectly sense)

I wish Danny best luck for the next big thing, he will surely establish.

Danny's writeup is great – sure, money is a legit issue, but at least for me, a passion came through from him that sounds like he won't be able to continue to feed if he stays. Best wishes Danny!

Danny is a wonderful person, a great boss, and as we all know, the guru when it comes to search. Working for him was a pure joy. I share a few thoughts about him here. ...

And yes, Chris (we wrote a book together) is also the VERY best as is Barry who has done an incredible job since I left (it's six months today). I am also honored to call both of them friends first, colleagues second.

I have no doubts that Danny will thrieve where ever he goes – such is the calibare of true a professional!!
