Todd Barr leaves Red Hat - Why wasn't I given a chance to hire him?

Good people are leaving the Red Hat ship....

I was just reading Todd Barr's blog this morning, only to discover he has left Red Hat and joined FiveRuns. I know Red Hat. I know FiveRuns. I even know Todd ([former] director of product marketing at Red Hat and a super-sharp guy).

But I didn't know Todd had left Red Hat to join FiveRuns, an open-source systems management company for monitoring Rails applications.

Funny enough, I was thinking of pinging Todd yesterday but forbear because I didn't want to annoy Red Hat by hiring out of its ranks...Todd, if you decide to change jobs again, I'd appreciate a call. :-)
