You'd think at some point that you'd get used to it, that it'd stop bothering you, that you'd get jaded to the point where it just wouldn't matter any more. I'm beginning to think that'll never happen.

Today we had a round of layoffs. It's the 6th round I've seen in the past year or year and a half, from 3 companies. I saw 3 at Kozmo.com, 2 at CondeNet, and now one here. They cut 10% of the staff, all of them "non-essential". I don't think tech was touched at all.

The upside is that with these staff cuts we should be able to break even. The downside is obvious.

I keep hoping one of these days I'll find a company that won't have layoffs. I doubt if I'll ever find one.

I'm glad I wasn't cut.
