51,000+ DotCom Layoffs…

Recovered from the Wayback Machine.

Being one of those that are part of a steeply growing curve, a layed off dot comer, I found the article Silicon Valley Workers Head Home in the Australian IT to be very interesting.

According to a source quoted in the article, there have been over 51,564 people laid off from DotComs…to date.

I bucked the trend and actually moved to San Francisco from Boston — and I found a new contract within a couple of weeks. Note, though, that I do have a number of years of experience, and with some fairly significant technologies. Still, before we attend a wake for the Internet, time for a reality check folks. The Internet and technology businesses are down, but they ain’t dead.
