Saw this news today. I worked at Cisco for 8.5 years. Had some good times, had some bad times. Still know some folks who work there. Hope they aren’t affected by this.

I remember a television interview (60 minutes?) years ago with John Chambers where he demonstrated a “network-enabled” piano, talked about technology and the Internet and how it will better the way we “work, live, play and learn”. He also shed a few tears when he talked about laying employees off.

I wonder how many tears he’s shedding now?

Flip? Remember Cerent? That was during the first bubble.

Bummer.
