Unfortunately, I have not only never bought a copy of Portfolio, I do not believe that I have ever seen a copy of Portfolio. But let me join my voice to that of Tyler Cowen:
Employees said they were told Thursday that most of Portfolio’s Web site staff would be dismissed and that much of the content unique to the site would be dropped.
Please keep him, we need him. I hold out hope in that word "most." Here is the story. Media, like new library books, are being hurt by the downturn and the slowing of advertising dollars. I fear that the non-independent blogosphere may be in for a bit of a financial bloodbath. So often the bloggers were an "investment in long-term name and image" rather than a profit center.
