So Google laid off 12,000 employees. CEO Sundar Pichai, as others before him, took full responsibility. Wow. How moving. What exactly does his "accountability" means? That his bonuses will be cut? His heart will be broken?
At least he didn't appear with tears in his eyes in a video as the Meta guy.

I’m deeply sorry for that. The fact that these changes will impact the lives of Googlers weighs heavily on me, and I take full responsibility for the decisions that led us here.

Over the past two years we’ve seen periods of dramatic growth. To match and fuel that growth, we hired for a different economic reality than the one we face today.

Signed Sundar. Wow. How cool.
*Alphabet's revenue growth slowed to 6% from 41% a year earlier. Slowed. They still had growth.

Random music snippet drops into my head. Inspires me to listen to the two songs I connect with it: Bruce's Darkside of Aquarius and then Maiden's Revelations. Since I was listening on my headset, my accompanying guitar playing and delightful singing may have gone a bit out of hand. Hope my neighbours enjoyed it.
