Quite Likely Last Year of Sirius

Summary: The situation at Sirius ‘Open Source’ is getting grimmer by the day or by the week; there’s almost nobody left at the company and those who are still there look for a way out, an escape from the sinking ship

THE crimes of Sirius aside, as the police investigates these too slowly (as expected all along and right from the start), today we take a quick look at the company as seen from the eyes of Microsoft (LinkedIn). There seems to be almost nobody left there; from what we can gather, it’s a very contingency-based semi-operational mode, trying to retain what’s left of the contracts. A couple of months ago a reasonably new employee was given more authority, as others left the company, creating a highly critical skills vacuum.

Will the company reach its 25th anniversary? That doesn’t seem so likely. For privacy reasons the video above does not show the screen and instead I’m reading or explaining what I am seeing before me (on a separate computer).
