…this time it wasn’t my idea. ;-)Â Â The owner of the company I was working for sold the company, and the new owners immediately liquidated and fired everyone.Â The funny part is that we were building out the infrastructure for the split of the new company from the non-profit foundation it used to be a part of, but we never got to finish it, so a certain CEO who cherish’s her blackberry will find herself without email.Â ;-)Â Serves her right for repeatedly telling us that we have nothing to worry about and strongly discouraging people from leaving when the rumors started to fly….Â Those people could have had new jobs/careers months ago and be spared the sudden unemployment.
So much for putting a company together for the long-term.Â Of course I should have expected this – First off no-one who wants to build an enterprise-class company does so with Windows.Â Windows is one of those “looks-good-on-the-surface” systems that lacks substance in all of the important areas.
Secondly – we haven’t been allowed to spend a dime for months now.
Oh well, like I said, I’m not concerned, the severance package was adequate and I’m going to take some time off and remember how to enjoy my family. 😉
