Layoffs in Houston today

Many of us have friends there so I'm posting here.

Layoffs have begun today at the Houston Chronicle. Incredibly, it will
take them two days to do it.
The Houston Press is blogging about it.

    Nobody's immune from trouble these days, but if you want to see how a well-led newspaper handles this, look at what the Oregonian's doing (note who takes the biggest pay cuts): http://www.oregonlive.com/business/index.ssf/2009/03/the_oregonian_responds_to_econ.html

  2. Is it too late to suggest that DMN get off the iPhone App craze (because I won't buy it) and hit up/promote the Amazon Kindle?

  4. The DMN is working on both iPhone apps and a Kindle service. I hope they don't abandon either "craze."
