Macworld Staff Laid Off, Jason Snell Leaving(▼)(▲)
September 10, 2014
Sad news from Macworld today. Most of their staff has been laid off and their print magazine is coming to an end. Jason Snell has also announced his own departure from IDG, but more on his own terms.
From Snell's post this morning:
Unfortunately, many of my colleagues lost their jobs today. If there's anything I can do to help them, I will. I have had time to plan for this day, but they haven't. You probably know some of them. Please join with me in giving them sympathy and support.
IDG waited until the day after the huge Apple event, squeezing the last bit of use out of Macworld's fantastic staff before canning them. Just terrible.
