Amanda unboomed

Controversy is raging across the web about the news that Rocketboom's host Amanda Congdon has been, well, unboomed, by her business partner Andrew Baron.

Rocketboom, no longer daily, no longer with Amanda Congdon. Will the show, and the company, survive her departure?

It's unclear as yet what exactly has gone on with the IPTV startup. Amanda's own video statement suggests that she has been fired by the company, but Andrew's response suggests that she has departed under her own steam. With commentary flying back and forth from the great and the good, both supporting Amanda and supporting Andrew, it's shaping up to be an interesting fight. I hope it works out in favour of the injured party, err, whichever one of them that turns out to be...

Update: The suggestion that Scoble should hire Amanda as he heads towards his new gig at Podtech has already floated and he isn't discouraging the idea although she's already had an offer from Jason Calacanis of Weblogs, Inc.

Update: Amanda has published the back and forth with Andrew on her personal weblog. Basically the entire thing has turned into one of those messed up situations where everyone losses, and everyone blames everyone else for what went wrong.

UPdate: Both Jason Calacanis and Scoble have their say on what they regard as the toughest job in management, keeping the talent happy...

Update: Already the jokes start, has the English language just acquired a new word?

Update: Did it really come down to the money? With a quarter of a million people tuning in every day they still couldn't attract enough advertising?

Update: Now Scoble is half-seriously trying to hire Calacanis. I wonder how many people get the opportunity to hire their own boss...?
