A recent post on Lifehacker reminds me that even though the dotcom bust is over, people do still get laid off. When that happens they need advice, both about what to do if they sense it coming, and what to do afterwards. Back in 2002 I actually wrote a book (well, an ebook) on the subject called Survive the Layoff. It languished for awhile with a poor publisher who ultimately failed, but last year it was picked up and saw the light of day at a site called Top Tips To. I keep forgetting that it's all still just as relevant today as it was a few years ago, it's just not always front page news anymore.
