Businessweek’s Moira Herbst and Catherine Holahan captured the story on the Yahoo layoffs.  I think that Twittering and Blogging this massive layoff will go down as one of those inflection points in our new global digital real time always on social bla bla bla ..<add buzzword here>.

Here is what BW mentions about me at the end..“But the exchanges of laid-off Yahoo workers isn’t all about commiseration; it’s also about finding leads. John Furrier writes in response to a story on TechCrunch that he’s hiring: “Bummer about Yahoo. I hope they can pull together and survive. Open call for Yahoo entrepreneurs who know social networks and social graph technology: I’m looking for product managers and engineers for my new social advertising startup. For info go to furrier.org—information on the startup is buried in the blog.”

To clarify:  “Information is buried in my blog”-  means that information about what I’m working on is weaved in and out of series of posts.  Many have figured out what I’m working on and  have contacted me.  I guess it’s a social media form of lead generation for finding like minds to collaborate with.
