CNET: Behind Rocketboom's breakup fireworks

On competing sites, Rocketboom's majority owner, Andrew Baron, said that Congdon had quit because she wanted to move to Los Angeles and that he wasn't able to meet her demands to move the video blog's production facilities there. Among other places, Baron posted his version of things directly on Rocketboom.com. (Read Interview)
