Came across a new blog this evening. It needs little explanation...
The Worldspan Alumni Blog.
Most of the entries rather helpfully point users to job vacancies around the US or highlight other news, such as births, marriages and deaths of ex-Worldspan employees and their families.
But this has to be the best entry, from July 2005:
"Well well well. Time to pull my big ole foot outta my mouth. After having very recently gleefully posting that I had heard no news of any layoffs in quite some time, it seems that karma was just out to get me. Indeed I have heard some widespread reports stating numbers between 65 and 90!Oh dear...
"We wish those that have fallen prey to the most recent round of layoffs the very best of luck in landing on their feet."
Unfortunately there has not been a post on the blog since February 2006. A shame - we would love to have read what RoboWizard, the blog's author, had to say about the Travelport deal.
