The job you did on Nest's CEO was incredible. You went public, empowering the Information to rip Nest's CEO apart.
Evidently, you still are not happy and took another swing at him. You are upset that he said that your team was not that good.
But, let's remember, you called him a "tyrant bureaucrat" who was "holding back all progress". And you made the Information article possible and powerful, by going on the record. So whether your team is good or bad, what did you reasonably expect going after him like that?
You do admit that you decided to sell the company and make hundreds of millions of dollars. That was your call and, I am assuming, you are not returning that money to Fadell/Nest/Google/Alphabet, correct?
I do think Dropcam executed very well and you should certainly be proud of that. But they paid a half billion dollars for Dropcam, which is also a very rich valuation.
Given the increasing commoditization and competitive inlux within the home consumer security market, you timed your sale very well.
And if you 'don't want to see that mission die' as you say in your post, start up Dropcam 2.0, and see if you can repeat it in today's market...
In the meantime, why such public bickering? You made your call. He gave you the money. Don't keep on trashing him. Walk away. Do something new. Move on.
