So the Duncan Riley saga gets more mysterious…
Now duncanriley.com is off line. Upon clicking through to read Duncan’s post about him leaving, the page failed to load. No prob, I’ll check it out in the Google cache, I figured. Bugger me, if I couldn’t find it there either.
Duncan Riley has dissapeared off the face of the blogosphere. Has B5 DoS’ed him? Is he now blogger non grata?
I wrote a post not too long ago commenting how intriguing the B5 thing was. The fact that this enterprise could evolve without the main stakeholders in the business having ever met each other.
As best as I know, this Toronto trip that Duncan was on was the first time he’d met with his Canadian co-partners. I’m not sure if this means it’s just better not to meet or the way that this thing sprung up was just bound to spring leaks somewhere along the line.
Duncan attended MediaConnect’s most recent Forum, I had a great, long chat with him one night over a bunch of beers. I’ll be very interested to see how much more is said. Bloggers crap on about transparency incessantly but when push comes to shove and people’s reputations, businesses, careers and so forth are at issue, you’ll generally find everyone takes the legally safe route of wishing each other the best and making no further comment. When you don’t it tends to lead to lawyers getting involved. Is it a coincidence that Duncan’s blog is offline?
