InfoWorld to close magazine business

I’m hearing rumors that the San Francisco Chronicle is in big trouble. Apparently, Phil Bronstein, the editor-in-chief, told staff in a recent “emergency meeting” that the news business “is broken, and no one knows how to fix it.” #

My fingers are crossed for the InfoWorld guys. And it’s hard not to feel bad for them, despite failing to value their star performer, Jon Udell, who left recently for Microsoft. #

  2. indeed Idid leave out the names of Steve Fox and others. I regret the ommissions. I wanted to focus on the early years ion purpos. if the rumor about InfoWorld is true, it marks the end of an era. I can’t begin to note the irony that it was Sam Whitmore who broke the story without sourcing.

    Thanks for the mention.

  3. Infoworld did produce some great journalists. Jon Udell joined Microsoft and Steve Gillmor has been hired by PodTech Network.

    Infoworld has a loyal following

  5. Look for Ziff to be the next publisher closing pubs – They are making a big push to get everyone to subscribe electronically vs. getting actual issues.

    They may be in luck though, and grab some of the ad budget InfoWorld advertisers have.
