OMGPop founder and Zynga have some history

Last week we learned that Zynga gobbled up OMGPop and it turns out that the founder of the latter actually turned down a job offer from the former in 2008. Charles Forman, after starting up OMGPop and a dating site, I'm In Like With You, left the gaming industry, and said no to an offer to go work for Zynga.

Forman is no sucker though, and kept his stock even after leaving his company. Thanks to Draw Something and its popularity, he is now estimated to be worth $22 million. Good for him, and also good for him on wanting to use his money to help other startups. 

Irony.
