There's nothing funny about a city succumbing to angry mobs, but it should be noted that many of the rock-tossing "fans" threw more accurately than Raider quarterback Rich Gannon.
Speaking of misfiring quarterbacks, Headcount has the latest on hirings and firings around the league.
How odd. Headcount wonders: If this were true, why would the company issue press releases on any employment matters? For example, a press release about Dave Gagne joining as VP of sales and Greg Dougherty joining its board of directors? (See T-Networks Adds to Board and T-Networks Names Sales Chief.)
Alas, Headcount will continue to hold, waiting to see which lucky executive ends up with the "no comment" hot potato that so many troubled startups are passing around these days.
Dagenais declined to elaborate on how small a core team he's talking about, but other press reports estimate that the company has cut 80 people and left 20.
The cuts came mostly from four facility shutdowns: two in Ireland and one each in India and Maryland, according to Doug Brownridge, PMC-Sierra's vice president of corporate marketing. Service-provider products suffered the deepest cuts, and some from those groups were shuffled to enterprise and storage jobs.
Here's a summary of other industry appointments, disappointments, and training news from the past several days:
