UPDATE: Dealbreaker: Spiers’ Exit Memo

Dear friends and colleagues:

This is just a note to let you know I’m leaving Dead Horse and to pass on my new contact info. (My partners and I have an insurmountable difference of opinion regarding long-term strategy for the company and we’ve come to point where I would like to do some projects that are materially riskier and more experimental than Dead Horse’s existing properties, and they would prefer to pull back and focus solely on the sites we have. There are reasonable and good arguments to be made on both sides of the issue, but ultimately we had to pick one or the other and pulling back was, for me, a dealbreaker–pun only slightly intended.)

Anyway, I’m in the process of deciding whether I want to pursue the aforementioned experimental projects independently or just chill out for a while and do some writing. In the meantime, if you need to reach me, this email address works and my cell is REDACTED.

Best,
Elizabeth
