Blogging about your departure from a job isn't new. But real time updates of your final hours via Twitter may well be.
Ryan Kuder is one of the unfortunate 1,000 staff who lost their jobs at Yahoo this week.
He started his chronicle with:
Y! layoffs today, I'm "impacted". I'm heading into work to pack my desk, get my severance paperwork and hand in my badge...more to come.
And from there he gave an hourly detail of his parting from the company, with plenty of humour and pathos along the way, as well as lots of musings about the end of free lattes.
On the plus side, my commute just got a lot shorter.
This is a serious downer. Trying to drown it in free lattes. Which I will miss.
Dammit. I was hoping to hook up the free Flickr Pro account before I got canned. Major fail.
Lots of whispered conversations. Like people are afraid to ask who's gone.
I'm going dark in a few minutes. The HR guy is on his way over to confiscate my laptop.
Ryan hasn't got anything else lined up - and it seems strange that Yahoo is laying off people before the Microsoft deal has completely played out, especially when MS is hiring, not firing people.
But good luck to Ryan and thanks for the Tweets.
