I'm taking some time off to do things i enjoy outside of technology, such as collecting rare air-cooled porsches,working on my cars and playing ultimate firsbee. And i will still be cheering WhatsApp on - just from the outside.Thanks to everyone who has made this journey possible,"Internal sources reaveal that Kourn made his decision to quit Facebook before the Cambridge Analytica controversy erupted.
