(n) - a social network consisting of the diaspora of former coworkers who scatter when a formerly-functional workplace detonates and everyone runs for the exits or loses employment. The post-detonation value of a workaspora to any particular member is directly proportional to the quality of the workforce assembled by the formerly-functional workplace prior to the detonation.
Example (1): She shouldn't have any trouble finding a job. The workaspora from her company is now spread out over every profitable firm in her industry.
Example(2): The reason that the workaspora from her company is so tight is that they had all loved working together before the merger and the shared suffering of the acquisition forced them to watch each other's backs until each person could get over the wall.
