Rocketboom Founder: Amanda Congdon Usurped Us

Andrew Michael Baron, a.k.a Mr. Rocketboom, writes on his dembot blog that former Rocketboomer Amanda Congdon‘s fancy new projects for HBO, ABCNews.com and Amanda Across America were all Rocketboom:

Yes, it is in fact my position that the Amanda Across America, ABC News and HBO projects are all Rocketboom projects that were usurped out of Rocketboom by Amanda when she quit.

And when I say usurped, I don’t just mean a little bit. I spent months working on these projects and relationships. I spent a great deal of legal fees on contracts, etc. — we are talking deep, deep development.

Expect a vloggy response from Congdon’s camp shortly.
