Well we – and by we I mean H8R and I – knew it was only a matter of time before another of my previous employers went completely tits up. My second job out of college was at DIRECTV Broadband and about a year and a half into my employment, while I was vacationing in Mazatlan, DIRECTV opted to close the Broadband (i.e. ISP) division of the company and laid everyone off.
I just got word that Metro One, which was once a billion dollar company, has finally closed it’s door. I’m glad, two down four to go. It was sad like when you hear of that one person trying to complete a marathon and it’s been over 11 hours and they still aren’t done, I mean come on, just give up and train harder next time. This guy is cool though.
