Here, in an October video, ousted Vimeo cofounder Jakob Lodwick explains how Connected Ventures keeps the office young. His opening thought is the kind of thing that's best both read and viewed. So, here. For your pleasure.

If you want to have a young office full of vibrant new ideas, just buy a bunch of slinkies. That will make all the old people turn into — no, not turn into young people directly — but, it will make them leave. And then they'll be replaced by young people.

Maybe Lodwick's departure had less to do with Vimeo's vanishingly small userbase than I thought.
