Why the new economy sucks (revisited)

Following up on an earlier post, I just found out that my old group at my former employer is being disbanded, meaning the whole lot of them are getting laid off. :-(

On the one hand, it’s looking like me getting out when I did turned out to be a good thing (though my “getting out” had absolutely nothing to do with the job :-) But on the other hand, a lot of people I considered friends are now scrambling to rearrange their lives—which, again, is why the new economy sucks.
