Li Finally Quits Procket

Tony Li appears to have finally quit Procket Networks Inc., the much-watched router company he founded. He broke the news in typical fashion, by posting a message on Light Reading late last night (see Re: The Daily Tony Report).

Coincidentally (?), the message is posted on a board relating to an article published in April 2002, covering rumors of Li's possible departure. In the article, an email from Li is quoted, in which he writes: "That rumor is patently false. I'm still exceedingly busy and have numerous responsibilities." (See Bigwigs out of Procket? )

Li made it clear in January that he was leaving Procket (see Li Quits Procket). Last night, he added a message to this article as well, addressing the pressing question: Is Tony Li GOD?. (His opinion? "No.")

Procket has not announced Li's departure, and Li is still listed as Procket's founder and chief scientist on its Website. Procket was unavailable for comment at press time, and Li hadn't responded to an email to his Procket address.

— Peter Heywood, Founding Editor, Light Reading

first class prima donna
Maybe he might want to find Bernard Daines and create a company together. They can battle over who pushed who out first? PD Networks?

re: Li Finally Quits Procket So this is how I see it:

We got a new CEO so the attention is off me now.

"I quit. Look at me. I said I quit! Isn't anyone listening?"

Guess not. Maybe I'll go back to work for a little while and let things settle down. When they get nice and quiet again....

"I quit! See? I said I quit! I'm back in town and I quit!"

Reminds me of my three year old son. The similarities are striking.

re: Li Finally Quits Procket Hey Tony, Thanks for putting straight info on the boards. It takes guts to do that.

Any hints on what's next??

re: Li Finally Quits Procket With no offense to Tony, how is this news? Like many of us, Tony is somewhat peripatetic in his employment. This says nothing about Procket or its long term viability.

re: Li Finally Quits Procket If Li hasn't responded to Light Reading, how do you know he actually posted that message? If I post a message saying I'm Pat Russo, do you print it as news?

Good grief.

re: Li Finally Quits Procket Come on 'readingsbelieving'...if it's in LightReading it must be true :]

re: Li Finally Quits Procket In spite of your skepticism, Ms Russo, Mr Li posts regularly on our message boards, using his actual for-real name. It's him. Trust me.
Your pal,

re: Li Finally Quits Procket the message wasn't from Tiny Lo was it?
