Headlight is No More

Thursday, March 15th, 2001 · No Comments

Headlight is no more. It’s the end of an era. For me, anyway. At 2pm today, during our regularly-scheduled all-hands meeting (albeit a couple hours early), we were informed, simply, that the company has run out of money and cannot afford to pay us. So it goes.

On to the next bigger and better thing. It was great fun while it lasted and I’m happy I hung on until the end. I always said I was planning on sticking around until “something major happens.” This is major enough. I just didn’t know it would come so soon.

Yesterday, however, I did have a really strong feeling that today would be the last day — at least for me. But alas, the entire company is no more. It does, of course, put each of us in an awkward position in dealing with partners — who, hopefully, will not hold the resentment against each of us individually — and talking to them about the news. But I just feel badly for everyone who put so much faith in the company. I sure did.

But in a way, it’s a big relief. My world is now a blank slate, and there’s so much I can do.
