Dave Winer: ‘AOL Is Doing Layoffs the Wrong Way’

Dave Winer:

You prepare for the layoffs quickly and quietly. Then one morning you do them. All of them. And then have a company meeting and you tell the people that that was it. No more layoffs. You’re on the team. And then have a good story about how you’re going to lead them to prosperity. […]

And what you don’t want to do is what AOL is doing. Week after week cutting off limbs. So that everyone inside the company is thinking they’re next.

Right. Who’s left at an AOL-owned site who isn’t looking around for a new gig?
