The End Of Jakob And JuliaS

Vimeo founder and recent firee Jakob Lodwick and his girlfriend, Star Editor at Large Julia Allison, have decided to end their shared website venture. "I don't enjoy the attention anymore. Don't misunderstand that: I love attention when it is earned. I love celebrity that sits atop compelling achievement," Jakob writes. Julia pointed out that Jakob refused to come with her to a meeting with Sequoia Capital, "one of—if not THE—biggest venture capital firms in Silicon Valley." Then she pointed out that "This was YOUR idea in the first place." She wrote: "I think it's really sad. I think you're really sad." She was addressing Jakob, but she might as well have been talking to you, or to me.
