BitTorrents Ashwin Navin Resigns — A Glimpse At His Resignation Letter

Ashwin Navin, left yahoo in 2004 to joing BitTorrent. 4 years ater, BitTorrent stands as a much stronger entity than it was 4 years ago, with a definite defined structure and business model.

BitTorrent was a 40 odd member company after some sacking took place on August 6th-7th, till I heard that they sacked some more employees, around 18 of them. That news was followed by Ashwin Navin’s exit news !

Ashwin Navin’s full letter follows :

Dear Friends,

I am excited to share some news regarding some personal changes at BitTorrent. Back in March, I indicated to my Board of Directors that I’d like to resign from BitTorrent in order to focus on a new venture. I felt comfortable moving on after we as a Board had recruited some strong leadership including a new CEO, CFO, and CTO, and agreed to a transition plan for me. As of several weeks ago, I officially transitioned from Co-Founder & President to a Co-Founder & Board Director.

My BitTorrent tenure certainly didn’t feel like four years, but time flies when working among good people, world-changing ideas, and great fun!

What attracted me to BitTorrent in the first place (and what is still inspiring to this day) is its ability to provide people true digital freedom. BitTorrent exemplifies market principles, tends toward decentralization, and operates on principles of meritocracy — all great virtues in my book! There have been few technologies in the history of mankind which have had such a massive impact on so many people, giving them the ability to communicate and benefit from each other. For its direct and indirect benefits, I believe BitTorrent sits among the handful of important technology breakthroughs such as the printing press, broadcasting, and the Internet itself. Why? Today’s publishing technology (like blogs, bittorrent, and video sharing sites for example) quite directly forge a level playing field for creativity. And indirectly, these tools force large media companies to realize that there is no longer scarcity or a stranglehold on distribution that locks people out of self-expression. Anyone can speak to the world in any format, without filters. Freedom of Speech has never been so available to the masses. How these large corporations respond to this fundamental realization will benefit many many millions of people–creators and consumers alike.

I am excited to continue contributing to BitTorrent as a Board member. The last four years have been a true adventure. We somehow managed to start the company amidst intense competition in the BitTorrent client space and we now have a great executive team focused on the BitTorrent client, DNA and SDK, reference-able partners in each program, a lucrative toolbar deal, and a massive and growing userbase with leading market share. The company is poised to continue its long march to success. Principal among our strengths is an extremely great set of people and trusted network of partners. You’ve all been tremendously good and gracious people to work with; thank you for that!

What’s next for me? A few possible directions but most notably, my friends Steve Chen (from YouTube), Aber Whitcomb (from MySpace), Jim Young (from HotOrNot) and I purchased a small building in the Mission District of San Francisco where we intend to build a physical environment conducive to innovation, collaboration and company formation. We all spent a fair amount of time in cafés as we were fostering and growing our own companies, and there will definitely be a caffeinated element to our new venture. More than that, we want to invite the next generation of tech entrepreneurs to use the facility as their initial base of operations. We intend to invest our time and money among this group trying to hatch the next few big ideas. I invite any of you to stop by and get involved. We intend to have many events there and if you’re feeling the itch to start something of your own, come on down and do it with us!

If you’d like to hear more about my next venture, drop me a note. I’d love to hear from you, and I’ll be sure to keep you updated.

Wishing you all the very best,

Ashwin

BitTorrent has seen a whole lot of strategic shifts from time to time. They were one of the best known torrent search engines and then moved on to be a business to busniess delivery with DNA. Later they did some software embedding in to routers and finally seems like they are settled down with their latest move – video game deliveries. Hopefully this new paradigm shift will work in their favor during the times of recession !!
