Microsoftie: KIN failure was an embarrassment across campus

,----[ Quote ]
| Granted, itâs just one Microsoftie emailing a 
| tech blog with his/her own assessment of the 
| mood on campus when the news broke - but I 
| canât imagine that anyone on the KIN team was 
| feeling all that upbeat when the news of 
| killing the KIN hit the blogosphere.

Thoughts on Wrapping Up Microsoft's FY10

| Stealth Layoffs: comments here for a while
| have been saying don't expect anymore large
| layoffs but do expect ongoing stealth
| layoffs, the kind that don't trigger the
| WARN act, let alone publicity. If you see
| your leadership meeting with HR far more
| frequently than usual, should you be
| nervous? Well, first step, ask what's up.
| If the answer is unsatisfying and doesn't
| ring true: yep, be nervous, especially as
| FY10 wraps up and new FY11 reduced budgets
| kick in.
