Why Did Linus Tallarico Leave NCIX?
In 2013, Linus Tallarico left NCIX to start a new company. He started as a hardware enthusiast and rose through the ranks, but soon decided to leave and pursue his own YouTube channel. He left NCIX after the company’s sales declined dramatically. In 2013, Linus launched LTT.
In the past, Linus had been the CEO of Ncix. His exit was the result of a conflict with the management. He negotiated a non-compete agreement with the company, but did not continue to be an employee. NCIX was the incubator of Linus Tech Tips, a successful YouTube channel that was conceived while he was employed there. Last Friday, NCIX filed for bankruptcy. The company also shut down its last walk-in retail store. Linus claims that NCIX failed to focus enough on its online business and that it spent too much money on the retail stores.
Linus joined NCIX in July 2006. He spent seven months working weekends at the store, before becoming a full-time employee and product manager. During that time, he was the company’s top seller for high-end gaming systems. He then was offered a role in the company’s head office in Richmond. He was also instrumental in making NCIX the top seller for RAM and water cooling parts in Canada. He juggled many different roles in order to help the company reach its sales goals.
The company is now looking for a new CEO. Linus was the leader of the company and left the company in September 2013. He has five other channels. Techquickie is a video channel where he explains technology in under 10 minutes. ShortCircuit and LMG clips are unboxing videos that help you learn about new gadgets. In addition, he has a channel about cats.
Sebastian met Luke Lafreniere at NCIX. Together, they started Techquickie in early 2012. The channel was a place for people to learn about new technology in a few minutes. Later, they established Linus Media Group with Brandon Lee and Edzel Yago. They now live stream a show called The Wan Show. It focuses on technology news and Q&As.
The news of NCIX’s impending shutdown has sparked fears among Canadians and online customers. The company has a retail presence in British Columbia, and also operates online in Canada and the US. However, customers have complained of issues with fulfillment and the increasing wait times for customer service. Many have feared the company would go bankrupt.
As the creator of Linux, Linus is an innovator who has made Linux an extremely popular platform. In a recent interview, he revealed that he uses the Fedora Linux distribution for his personal computer. This distribution has good support for the PowerPC processor architecture. He even confirmed using Fedora in a later interview.
Linus Sebastian also runs a YouTube channel called Linus Tech Tips. He has 12 million subscribers and 4.1 billion views. The channel is among the most popular technology channels on YouTube. He built this channel while working at NCIX, but he later left the company. He has since launched three other YouTube channels.
