How to digest getting laid off by the CBC?
CBC/Radio-Canada announced some 800 job cuts this morning. Of those, 335 affected French services. Of those, they said 9 of them would affect Radio-Canada.ca, perhaps the largest French-language media website in the country. And one of those nine jobs turned out to be my position. =(
If you are looking to hire an IT specialist, with experience and a special interest in developing new means of communicating information, then here's my CV:
While I'm preparing to live on sprouted beans, ground pork and rice for the next few weeks, I'm also going to give my self-made projects a few more days of work before launching.

Anyways, it's just talk for now. Stay tuned, then!
