As a 'demisee' this week (and a vocal forecaster of the fastest
shake-out in history) I find myself having to add my two penneth.

Quite. I'm being big enough to admit that it was a managerial balls-up
on my part that Upstart effectively went belly-up. I think the story is
the same behind most of the others, too, but there is an awful lot of
pride & ego at play, so you won't find it being shouted from the
rooftops. I'm happy to, because as far as I'm concerned that was stage 3
of my career, I failed, learned tons and should I ever have the chance
to do it again, will know some of what not to do.

In the meantime, I am keeping hold of Upstart in bank account name only,
and am now available for freelance work in the analysis/authoring field!
