Jason Snell Leaves Macworld, Staff Laid Off

Jason Snell:

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.

I’ve known Jason and many of the staffers at Macworld for years. I just saw them yesterday. This is hard for me to believe, and very sad.

Macworld is not closing, but the print magazine is closing, and it sounds like a lot of the familiar bylines will be gone.

Update: Re-reading Snell’s announcement, I have to say, it’s a masterpiece of tone and restraint.
