On August 10, 2001, Aimster (Pi2 Products, LLC and AbovePeer, LLC) decided to not pay any of its employees. Instead, they purchased 60 new whitebox servers. What a wonderful business model! Buy many new computers yet don’t have any developers there to work with them. Also, make sure to give no warning or explanation for this lack of funds. Quite awesome indeed. So now it has been 8 days and I still have not been paid. The cell phone I have through the company is about to be shut off due to nonpayment. Advice from the office: pay it yourself and submit an expense report. Haha! It would be truly amusing if it were not so, so sad.
Good-bye Aimster! So much promise.
