John Carmack Leaves Meta, Cites Company 'Inefficiency'


Recommended Posts


Legendary gaming developer John Carmack has resigned from his position as a consulting CTO for VR at Meta. Widely known for his work on the games Doom and Quake, Carmack says he's leaving to focus full-time on his AI startup Keen Technologies.


Carmack shared his internal resignation note in a post(Opens in a new window) on Facebook. It includes some frank parting shots at Meta, which he repeatedly criticizes for being “inefficient.


Carmack says the company is operating at “half the effectiveness that would make me happy,” adding that despite having a “voice at the highest levels,” he was “evidently not persuasive enough” to change its culture. 


Carmack is leaving to focus full-time on his AI startup Keen Technologies, but he has some harsh words for the culture...



Interesting, but hardly surprising.
