Simon Wardley, COO of Zimki has resigned, during his speech at OSCOM, with the quote:

Open source is not a tactic. It is not a strategy. It is the only practical way of competing in this marketplace.

I’ve just heard a couple of rumours that the entire staff have been laid off too, with a potential platform closedown imminent. Nothing on the Zimki blog yet, but I wouldn’t expect there to be – plenty to be found via Google Blogsearch though, and Simon’s own blog posting on the subject is here.

There’s a Reg story about it as well.
