People I haven't heard from in well over a year are all of a sudden reaching out like desperate lemmings. I have received at least 7 connection requests in the last couple of days since the weekend on LI. People not willing to assist when laid off all of a sudden looking for assistance out of desperation. People I have had no contact with at all, not even a how are things going or what's up, looking for networking opportunities, job opportunities. Some of them in upper management which leads me to believe something is brewing before year end. I could be wrong. They may just be waking up to the notion that Lenovo is a horrible company to work for.
For those in DCG, keep your eyes and ears open. My experience is rumors are far more truth than not.
