Notch is leaving Mojang

Notch, in a goodbye letter on his website:

I’ve become a symbol. I don’t want to be a symbol, responsible for something huge that I don’t understand, that I don’t want to work on, that keeps coming back to me. I’m not an entrepreneur. I’m not a CEO. I’m a nerdy computer programmer who likes to have opinions on Twitter.

The entire letter is quick and to the point. You should read it.

He concludes:

It’s not about the money. It’s about my sanity.

I can certainly relate.

Best of luck, buddy.
