Just so that we have a thread to talk about it rather than lots of separate posts in other places.
Personally I’ve seen a lot of tech acquisitions and they always start with this same rhetoric, “welcome to the family”, “we’re not going to change anything”, etc. That’s when the experienced cynic starts migrating data off the platform. Then the original people in the acquired organisation leave, or are forced to leave, and the whole thing goes to pot as the new owners desperately try to make it profitable.
I’d potentially give my programming labour to help a non-profit as BGA used to be. I’m certainly not giving it to a private equity firm.
But, you know, hope for the best and maybe I’m wrong.
