Pierre Chappaz leaves Netvibes

If the captain (in this case, co-captain) leaves the boat, is there something wrong? It could be, but I doubt it. I am writing this because Pierre Chappaz, the founder of Kelkoo, has announced that he is leaving Netvibes, where he used to be co-CEO, together with Tariq Krim.

I have asked friends who know both of them and they all think the same: the problem is not with Netvibes but with Chappaz. Besides changing girlfriends, which is pink stuff but seems to have affected him professionally, he got angry with his friend. So they could not share responsibilities in Netvibes, which keeps being one of the most successful Web 2.0 projects in Europe.
