Is there something in the air?

Om Malik announced today he is leaving his job at Business 2.0 to setup a new business.

Robert Scoble let slip that he is leaving Microsoft to join a startup, at a bloggers dinner the other night.

Tara Hunt announced last week that she’s leaving Riya to go out on her own.

Ben Metcalf has left the BBC to start something new.

Chris Messina posted a couple of months back that he was leaving Flock to go out on his own.

I’m sure there are others I have left out.

Of course no trend would be complete without its exception – Niall Kennedy announced he was leaving startup Technorati back in February and subsequently joined Microsoft!

It seems that all over good people are on the move, primarily from (reasonably) secure jobs into the great unknown that is startupsville! Is there something in the air?
