I felt like I was reading back story for hours and still didnt make it anywhere close to whatever the future plans are before just clicking back. :(
He’s selling HIBP to somebody because it takes up too much time. Doesn’t know who yet, but the process of finding a buyer and setting up a deal now involves the M&A department of some financial consulting firm, and has a project name, which this is. There’s a list of goals he expects to get from the process. That’s pretty much it.
I skipped to the end, and I didn’t really figure it out either, but I think he is selling off HIBP, to someone (unclear who) and he will go with it. Hopefully it will be to make it better, but only the future will know.
He has acquired a lot of data about a lot of people, I bet that’s quite valuable to a few companies.
The stats around HIBP’s growth were pretty interesting though.
I know 1Password and lots of other things use it as a data source, I get the impression he plans to scale that out and make it more available and transparent.
This guy has been a gift from god.
