Today, independent information corroborates that the layoff affected staff outside the Santa Cruz office. Staff in the Mountain View office were also affected.
The magnitude is not yet known. VeriSign is apparently attempting to keep the Apr 16, 2008 RIF (layoff) very quiet. Makes sense, since they are attempting to “divest” areas of the business, including the LightSurf portion. Might spook a potential buyer, or a potential investor.
