Why I left…

… Fordham University in 2006:

Jason Calacanis offered me the position of Managing Editor for Netscape.com.

… Netscape in 2007:

AOL had fired or lost all their great upper management and were being run by two people who didn’t know what they were doing. Also, the expenses system was nightmarish.

… Mahalo in 2008:

I know you’ve all been dying to hear the drama behind me leaving Mahalo. Here it is: my wife and I hated living in LA, our apartment in New York didn’t sell for a whole year, so we were floating a mortgage and rent, and I missed living in a place with actual seasons.

There you go. Is that adequate for my lamest, navel-gazing meme of the year merit badge?
