When a startup is hot, there's often drama -- and now the startup world wants to know what exactly is going on at Pinterest, the virtual pinboard site that has quickly become a phenomenon.
What's it mean for millions of Pinterest fans? Most like, not a thing.
The man who's the public face of Pinterest, Ben Silbermann, will now officially become the CEO, and the third co-founder, Evan Sharp, is still in place. Sharp is the man who gets credit for the site's compelling design, which is influencing the look of sites across the Web.
The company has raised $35.7 million from the likes of Andreessen Horowitz and Ron Conway, and it seems so firmly on track that any executive drama -- if that's what's going on -- is unlikely to derail it. A bigger issue may be its challenges with copyrighted images and content that people are freely pinning from around the Web.
