Pyrogon Postmortem

Brian Hook (formerly of id) wrote a postmortem for his gaming company called Pyrogon. It's a good look at how even success can kill you (or at least how success can go away at great speed). Read it if you are even moderately interested in the "other side" of the gaming biz or considering getting into it yourself. Thanks Evil Avatar.

BayStar Explains

BayStar's Lawrence R. Goldfarb explained why they asked SCO for their money back. It wasn't because they suddenly felt that SCO's suits had no merit (of course, they wouldn't admit that even if they felt that way), but because they felt that Darl and others were spending way too much time and money shooting their mouths off. They don't come right out and say they want Darl out, but that's the gist. Thanks Ars Technica.

The Master comments: And yet SCOX is up a $1.40 today. I swear, this is the anti-stock. It goes UP on bad news.

A.T. Hun comments: I'm guessing that the increase is on the news that their CFO is retiring (Groklaw bids him a fond farewell). The price is still quite a bit off their 52-week high. There are probably enough "optimists" out there who feel that the stock might still spike somewhere along the line to make it worth the risk. I personally don't have that kind of risk tolerance. I have thought that it would be fun to buy some stock and show up at a stockholders' meeting, though :)
