Creative chaos for fun and profit

We just had a big huge all-hands meeting. We're dumping our entire current product platform as unworkable, and will be basing future products around another platform from a different part of the business. That means that there's going to be a huge effort this year and next involving both supporting the current code and implementing a whole new architecture. They're explicitly talking about bringing in more people from outside, and probably outsourcing a good chunk of the development.

All of which adds up to an opportunity for me. They might reconsider the big contractor purge slated for the end of June... and if they don't, I could A) apply for any new positions that would be created, or B) get a job with whoever they outsource to. All told, the chances of that happening are still probably less than 50%, but it still adds up to a high-quality job lead with a significant shot of panning out.

At the very least, things aren't quite as bleak as they were yesterday....
