And So It Begins …

With rumors of a layoff spree in the not-too-distant future, it appears that the future is really here at Yahoo! Reinforcing the “noone is safe” aspect of what we’ve been told by Yahoo!, VP of Marketing Todd Daum is rumored to have been laid off earlier today. I first head of this layoff over at ValleyWag.com. They’re also providing some links to other related reading so worth the read. You can read the news here.

The total number of Yahoo! employees laid off today is slightly higher than predicted at 1,100 bringing the total number of employees there down to about 13,200. There’s a good writeup of the scale of the layoffs and surrounding environment on the News.com site here.
