Speakers and executives schmooze during the Web 2.0 conference in San Francisco.
The Internet Age has these many years stumbled along without its muse. But now it's found Odd Todd and his autobiographical cartoon, "Laid Off: A Day in the Life."
A survey of dot-com employees who have been laid off found that 51 percent were not interested in working in the Internet industry again. The poll--conducted by Vault, a company that offers career and workplace information--found that the other 49 percent would still work at an Internet company again. The study polled nearly 300 laid-off workers.
People laid off from their failed or struggling dot-com companies are the guests of honor at "Pink Slip" parties, which are becoming the latest in networking and job-hunting.
