Chandler layoffs

Chandler Project

OSAF
announced
that they’re cutting almost â…” of their staff (from 28 to 10), and I’m one of those cuts.
We were told in a meeting on Monday, and the blog post went up Tuesday.

I was surprised by the abruptness of the move, and its timing.
Previous guidance had been given that funding would go to the end of the year.
But now it sounds like the funds for 2008 will be drastically less than those for 2007.

Alas.

So now Chandler has to get itself set up to make some money.
I’m guessing by incorporating some sort of Google technology into the product.
Or perhaps on the server side.
But these are just guesses on my part.
Finding grants and similar endowments might be another strategy.

For me, personally, it means returning to looking for contract work.
I’ve already had a few nibbles, so it looks like all will be well.
I may be doing some work with Qt.

Reid, work.
