I am not so sure about articles like this one, which claim Google is quietly laying off 10,000 workers (all contract but still full time), but has not a single direct source. If this is true, why, ping me here or in email. If 10K of you are “afffected” I am sure one of you can drop a dime.
Update: A few very interesting emails have come in, I will post them when I confirm they are real, meanwhile, you can reach me here. Email addresses are always kept in confidence.
