Joyent CEO, Heny Wasik gave an interview this morning, to explain the change of direction he ordered on assumption of his new role. The ex-Dell man assumed control of the San Francisco based Cloud company in November last year. Almost immediately, he put a halt on all the company’s change processes to re-evaluate the wisdom of the direction they were taking. One of the first decisions he made was to recant on a move already made to start a support operation in the UK. Here’s how the conversation with our correspondent, Johann Ticklebollock, went.

JT I’m sorry, I don’t understand?
HW 246 Toothpicks, definitely 246, I’m an excellent CEO.
JT OK, but how does that relate to leading people to believe they had gained employment with your company, and be told they hadn’t after they had already resigned their existing employment?
HW Flying’s very dangerous. In 1987 there were there were 30 airline accidents. 211 were fatalities and 230 were definitely passengers.
JT I’m sorry Mr Wasik, but that doesn’t address these important questions. What have you to say to these people who’s careers have been effectively halted on your whim?
HW I’m an excellent CEO.
JT That’s not under dispute here, but the matter of corporate ethics is…
HW 8 Minutes to Wapner
JT please don’t evade the question Mr Wasik, 8 minutes is plenty of time to address, maybe even apologise for the damage you’ve done.
HW There are 246 toothpi…..
JT OH SHUT UP YOU FUCKING RETARD!
