“It’s a complete and utter failure,” the company’s CTO said, explaining why Ars decided to abandon the program in its entirety.
“I can’t believe we didn’t do it before.
We have to be in the position of having to say, ‘If we do it again, it’s going to be a disaster.'””
I can say with a fair degree of certainty that it is going to cost us a lot of money,” Ars CEO Matt Wood added.
“And we have to do it differently.”
While Ars has been able to pull off similar things before, such as hiring a full-time software engineer to work on a product after its acquisition by Amazon, Wood acknowledged that this time the company wasn’t going to have a full team on hand to implement the program.
Ars has a few more weeks to find out how to get it right.
