Tribe to return to hippie paradise

Now that the news of his takeover is out, Tribe founder Mark Pincus shares with the blog SiliconBeat his plans, now that he's back at the helm.

  • CEO Jan Gullett, laregely derided as a corporate tool (pictured) by Tribe's more outspoken anarchohippies, is so out. Hell, they'll probably frog-march him out of the office.
  • Tribe is back to focusing on adults, since the teens have long since fled to MySpace.
  • No more "big stupid masthead," as Mark said on his blog.
  • Mark says he's the only board member. He's building his new business plan with his engineering team, and he has no marketing team. Foolhardy? Maybe. Refreshing? Hell yes.
