I Thought We'd Finished This in March

More layoffs at EA.com today. My former officemate Seth Goldberg was released, which upsets me both because I really like Seth and because I’m probably going to get saddled with the billing system that he’d been taking care of. Cuts in Austin were comparatively light, given that from what I hear, about 50% of EA.com’s people were sent packing. (EA.com is the online subsidiary of EA which is responsible for Ultima Online, Majestic, the soon-to-be-released Motor City Online, and various other online game projects.)

I guess it could have been worse. But it could have been a whole lot better too.
