Last evening, DropSend announced that it was For Sale.   Ok, fair enough.  But then a few hours later, it blogged about already receiving several emails expressing interest, including “…one from Geoffrey Arrone (from Flock)“.

This strikes me as a bad move.  If in fact there is interest being expressed via email, those persons communicating with DropSend probably had an expectation of confidentiality.  Since I didn’t see any of those messages (why would I have??), I can only speculate about how I would react in a similar situation.

I left a similar comment for Ryan Carson on his blog.  As I said there, I wish him well, but I suggested he reconsider the public discussion of what should be – at this point at least – confidential business discussions.

Ryan has since posted about getting picked up by [TechCrunch,][4] where Mike is also questioning the Flock disclosure.  It sure looks like Ryan is seeking publicity above substance here.   

This may backfire on Ryan.
