According to a press release
sent out by Activision this morning, Dan Rosensweig, former chief operating officer for Yahoo! and Ziff-Davis executive, is now the President of Guitar Hero
. This means that Guitar Hero
is now a sovereign nation, and we can expect a mass defection of teenagers. Oh, wait, the press release says that he's the President and CEO of Activision's Guitar Hero
Rosensweig is now in charge of RedOctane, the former accessories maker and game rental service that is now
the division of Activision producing the Guitar Hero
games -- as well as, the press release notes, the "soon to be released DJ Hero
(TM)." Kai Huang, RedOctane's founder, will "continue working at RedOctane reporting to Mr. Rosensweig." Ouch.
