When Jason Calacanis said to Sarah Lane on TWiT this week that Revision3 has a few too many people for a company of its size, it seemed like an honest enough business assessment. After she got laid off from Rev3 yesterday, it’s a little chilling.
Eep. Bad timing.
But the thing that cracks me up the most about the relatively minor layoffs at Rev3 this week is the internet outrage and outcry against the company. It’s a repeat of every stupid thing every dumb comic book fanboy ever says about Marvel or DC when a book they like gets cancelled.
And I supposed I shouldn’t be surprised that a company that relies on Diggnation for its top viewership would have fans who would say Rev3 did everything wrong this week, and that Rev3 should have democratized who got laid off and which shows got canned.
There comes a time, I suppose, where you reap what you sow. Rely on social media, and have that society think that everything mirrors them.
