Dan Nye Leaving LinkedIn

Various tech news sites (AllThingsDigital, TechCrunch, Valleywag, VentureBeat, Silicon Alley Insider, CNET News.com) report that Dan Nye is leaving LinkedIn from his role as CEO, as part of a four way executive shuffle. I wonder if some of the problems rumored on Valleywag were the cause of Dan needing to leave, or if there were other matters. It is a bit hard to believe that Dan leaving after less than 2 years on the job was some sort of regular plan or natural progression of the business.

Whatever it is, I hope Dan lands on his feet somewhere.
