Tough times at the old stomping grounds

The smell of layoffs is in the air around Intel. I'd spoken to a few friends over there that had seen signs coming for a while, and then there was the 1000-manager-layoff announcement, and now rumor that a cut as big as 10% across the board is in the works.

Tough times for my former co-workers. Best of luck to all my friends there.

And to anyone with games expertise and who'd imagine themselves on my "exceeds" list, feel free to drop me a note about MS inquiries. We're hiring for a few select positions (biz dev, program management, software development, etc).

Yeah I recall your first month at Intel; your goal was to do a single accomplishment that would make the stock go up a point...or something to that effect.

Poetically, 10,000-20,000 of us will accomplish that goal by leaving.
