The man Armstrong told to "put that camera down" is no longer with the company, according to his LinkedIn profile
Abel Lenz might not be talking to reporters on Twitter, but his LinkedIn profile speaks for itself: the man AOL CEO Tim Armstrong fired during a conference call for taking pictures no longer works at Patch.
Lenz, whose Twitter timeline indicates that he is a frequent photo-taker, was acting as the Patch conference call's amateur photographer. Two minutes in, Armstrong can be heard saying, in front of the 1,000 people (including Jim Romenesko, oops!) listening in: "Abel, put that camera down." Followed by: "You're fired. Out."
Well. He's not completely without work, at least. According to his LinkedIn profile, he's still a teacher at Miami Ad School's Brooklyn campus.
And the job offers are pouring in!
