TidBITS Announces Reorganization

Send Article to a Friend


TidBITS Announces Reorganization -- Following in the footsteps of such industry leaders as Apple Computer, TidBITS today announced plans to lay off thousands of employees. "It's a bit like selling a stock short," explained TidBITS publisher Adam Engst. "First we lay off the employees, take advantage of a massive tax write-off, and then we can use the money to hire them." TidBITS also announced a shareholders meeting to be held this time next year; bring a dessert to share. [ECA]
