Tough times. Tough decisions.

As you will no doubt know we are all operating in some very challenging and uncertain times right now. It’s never easy to address topics like this but as a company we have felt the need to get Seesmic ready for what most are anticipating to be a bleak economic outlook for the considerable time going forward.

In order to prepare the company and ensure it has as strong a position until we reach to the other side, we have had to make some tough decisions around expenditure – the biggest impact being that we will be cutting 7 positions within the company.

Of course this is not a decision we have entered into lightly, especially when all of our staff have contributed so heavily to our growth. But the longevity of the company is obviously of significant importance – and thus we must reduce costs now in order to establish Seesmic as a solid business and pursue success of the company for years to come.

Whilst today’s news is sad for everyone we want to reassure our community and partners that Seesmic will continue move forward – establishing a strong and stable platform for communication just we have always done.

    Le web 2.0 est-il vraiment mort? J’en doute.

    Le web 2.0 est-il mort? La question mérite d’être posée. Techcrunch (Arrington) a lancé le slogan, il y a deux jours, sur la base de présentations et d’indicateurs tres orientés investisseurs de la Silicon Valley. Techcrunch FR (Ouriel) lui em
