npm becomes a VC-backed company?

Did you see this?

Now, I’m a node newbie as you know, so I don’t know if this is weird or not, but it seems weird to me, that a public resource like npm would become a company.

Do you have an opinion about this?

I’m having a blast working in node and connecting it up with stuff running in the browser. Lots of improvements in the last few days to the Fargo Publisher project (the server for Fargo 2).

It’s a very nice little world. And Heroku is a total gift to a guy like me. You might find it useful too. You can deploy as many apps as you want for free, and as long as they’re low volume (not sure exactly what that mean) they stay free.
