Not only Microsoft is cutting thousands of jobs

by Volker Weber

Apparently IBM is following suit. Last week a couple of people at Lotusphere got their notice. A new round is expected for Tuesday. Watch out for activity on LinkedIn:

Yesterday, I learned that I was part of a widespread resource action within IBM. I am reaching out to my network to learn of new employment opportunities, and to request that you kindly provide a recommendation on my work. I am currently seeking ..., if you care to tailor your recommendation to my ... ability. If you are a fellow IBMer, caught up in this resource action, please let me know, and I will do the same, unconditionally.

Jeff Kiger of Post-Bulletin tries to collect more information.

comes as a surprise after 4.4 bn earnings, based on cost cutting activities already....

Armin Roth, 2009-01-26

This is horrible, and I agree with Armin - quite a surprise after the news of posting profits in that neighborhood.
