"I love tin and therefore I resign!"
"So, please accept my resignation, effective July 12. And I don't need any fancy parties or gold watches (I still have the one from '61 and '76). I will be spending more time with my family, tending to my small but growing alpaca herd and, of course, getting back to work with tin, my first love."
The celebrated founder and Director of Product Management of Flickr, Stewart Butterfield wrote this "bizarre" resignation letter. There were talks about this exit from last October itself, but the way he did it sounds funny. Anyway, check out the full letter at LA Times.
