Losing job, step two

Here is Multiactive's official press release on its 38 layoffs of January 31, including mine. The other "restructuring" changes were already in place beforehand, but the company hadn't announced them.

Two days since the layoffs came, and today I signed my termination agreement -- now there's a lovely phrase -- and turned it in. My severance and (apparently rather massive) unused vacation payout should be ready on Monday or Tuesday.

In this brief time, I've gone from moderate surprise, to a weird giddiness, to bummed out, and now to optimistic anticipation of whatever comes next. It certainly helps that most of my computer geek friends from fifteen years ago are still part of my contact network. It looks like I may have an interview or two next week. With luck, I won't even have to try the more traditional job-hunting avenues.

In the meantime, I've bought some fine Newcastle Brown Ale, and I'll be revising this Web site over the next few days.
