Care for a case of irony? It seems that four years ago Charles Forman, founder the latest supernova sensation OMGPop, was approached by Farmville creators Zynga with a job. Instead of hanging out with them and prompting friends to tend his crops, he decided to leave the business for greener pastures. Wonder what he would have helped create if he had hopped on over? Alas we shall never know.
When Zynga gobbled up OMGPop recently, Forman’s shares with the mobile developer skyrocketed him into an estimated worth of $22 million. So what does he plan on doing with all that mad loot? Help other startups get their footing of course! Mad props for him.
