Before you leave for the day...

So, I'm hopping on a plane at about a quarter to wakeup tomorrow morning. So I'm trying to get some last inane feature requests done before I take off for the day.

At 3:50, email comes around saying 'join us for a short but important meeting at 4'. Crap.

I don't think that I've ever been called to an emergency meeting with GOOD news.


So, back when I was posting about repostering my boss' office, that guy wasn't really my boss. I mean, I took orders from him, but the guy who handled my reviews, the guy who could fire me, he was the head of the Studio. A guy named Stephen. A friend of mine from... well, he interviewed me for the job that brought me from Boston to Seattle.

The 4pm meeting was that Stephen had resigned.

This is big news for the studio. It may be a turning point for the better, it may be the bellwether of bad times. We'll see.

One thing I know, though, is that it would have sucked to have been travelling this weekend had they just laid us all off, which was my guess as to what the news at the meeting was going to be.
