Given that every day we hear about the layoffs that are happing in Corporate America I started to think if the downsizing in itself might actually be beneficial to some who are let go. For the longest time the Google’s, Microsoft’s and IBM’s of the world have been sucking up the biggest and brightest resources to work on their products and fill their revenue coffers. Now that some of those individuals find themselves available, are we going to see the creation of new companies that will compete with their former employees, or will smaller companies now have available resources to build their businesses and execute on the visions that are laying dormant do to lack of talented employees? I suspect that once some of these individuals get out of the comfort zone of having a regular paying job, and realize that opportunity is still available,  we will see some creative ideas cropping up and new businesses being built.
