WotC Layoffs

Looks like WotC's laid off a fair number of folks. Some of them people I've worked with and who've written for me. A few who are good friends.

Today sucks.

Sigh. Wish they'd get by a year without this annual holiday tradition.

Any news source for who got laid off?

Only now does it feel like the "holiday" season. Sigh.

Terrible News
Terrible news. I don't wish that on anyone. I think this says a bit about the impact of the economy on the gaming hobby. Hopefully Paizo weathers the storm well. I do think that the next 6 months are going to be tough.

Paizo is doing quite well. Not being part of a big corporation and not being publicly traded more or less makes us immune to the whims of shareholders and the like. Which is nice.

James - good to hear that Paizo continues to do well. Best wishes to you guys in 2009!

The thing about small companies is that they have to keep a close watch on cash flow and credit. As long as cash flow is positive and they have a secured line of credit, they should be in good shape.

I do agree that sometimes it is nice not having to think about stock price. But when the stock is doing well, that is a very good thing!

Oh my god
I'm tracking layoffs at http://www.layoffs.in/usa and it is pretty alarming.
