Sorry all of you are being replaced by Indians and Chinamens. Oh well you were overpaid way too long. Why don't you move back up North?

Here is a great place to read up on all their whining. Enjoy.

By the grammar and spelling in your post, you are obviously unemployed. Why are you so jealous of us? Fired, huh? Thought so.

Comment 3/01/11: I knew my lay off was just a matter of time and knoew it for years. But at 28.6 years!! What a reaming!! Thanks Sam! However, what really sucks now, when looking for a job in IT,(which itself sucks now!) is when phone calls regarding the jobs are returned by ALL Indians! Now THEY hire us. WTF is wrong with you America !!! And these young arrogant IBMers who are on fast tracks, A word to the wise, All the ones I knew that were, are now gone! BWAHAHAHA ! HOW ABOUT SOME GREEN EGGS AND HAM, SAM!-28.6 years-

Thanks for everything folks.

Comment 3/02/11: Palmisano, 59, who's led the company for eight years, received $9 million in incentives last year, the company said in a regulatory filing today. That compares with $4.75 million a year earlier. Sam makes all the money, we as IBMers continue to be RA'ed -ANA-

CEO's making lots of money and they deserve every penny.

Sammy only made $25,000,000. He deserves much more. IBM stock up 14.3% in 2010. Whatever you are doing Sammy keep up the good work. You are making all of us shareholders very wealthy and we greatly appreciate it.

Time for an update folks:

Comment 4/14/11: IBM is developing an application called Liquid Portal, which is very much like the commercial TopCoder.com where freelance developers compete for one-time assignments that pay a nominal amount of cash. There is a huge push by executives, particularly in AMS to start running competitions on Liquid Portal. It's clear that VP/Director bonuses depend on it. Development teams are being required to parcel out their project requirements as competitions on Liquid Portal. They must create specifications and run competitions rather than do the work themselves. The core development are then left to try to integrate the disjointed deliverables and deal with the continuous training and inefficiency that comes with the lack of continuity. The ultimate plan will be to RA full time developers and allow them to return to compete for short-term assignments through Liquid Portal, which will eventually be an external application. IBM DOES NOT WANT FULL TIME EMPLOYEES. Who remembers IBM Executive Tim Ringo and how he spilled the beans on this last year, boasting of crowdsourcing and the plan to eventually cut 299K employees? Well, Liquid Portal will be the primary tool used to displace full time IBMers worldwide.-Anonymous-

Have a great weekend!!!
