Matt Asay Leaves Canonical for Strobe

Thursday Dec 9th 2010 by Keith Vance

Asay was with Canonical for only 10 months, and now he's leaving to join Strobe to build HTML5 Web-based applications.

After just 10 months with the company, Matt Asay has officially resigned as Canonical's chief operating officer.

"Two weeks ago I made the extremely difficult decision to leave Canonical to join early-stage HTML5 startup Strobe, one focused on building the open web through killer mobile apps," Asay said on his blog today.

This was a difficult decision, but Asay said he misses "being in the trenches." While being a COO is a "good experience, it's not really the one that I want."

Asay will be running the sales and business development for Strobe. Strobe builds HTML5 Web-based applications using open source SproutCore.
