Re: “Big-screen Veronica Mars more enjoyable as a reunion than a movie

I wonder if the person who wrote this review watched the movie. Most of it is detached from reality.

Re: “Desperately Seeking The Newspaper

Poetic justice: A design dolt criticizes the approach of a design-based chain and wants someone else to save the paper.

Re: “More Cuts at Gannett as Design Studio Lops Off Heads


Just to help you out:

I was told before this happened that it would happen. The only question was when.

So I didn't need a Google alert.

"Excited" is not the right word. As I'm sure you are a designer infopimp, you probably hear your word choice questioned quite a bit. Try to adjust and adapt, infopimp.

Finally, what are these facts that are missing? Are you afraid to share them because you might be wrong?

Re: “More Cuts at Gannett as Design Studio Lops Off Heads

Although I sympathize with the people out of work, I have to say this should surprise no one. I said from the start that designers who had been given entire shifts to obsess about a couple of section fronts would never be able to handle the workload of producing multiple papers.

Regarding the statements of Marymont (note the spelling) to SND -- OF COURSE that was B.S. If SND swallowed that baloney whole, that's on the organization for not doing its homework. (Disclosure: I have a couple of Q&As at my site, too, and I suspect at least one person was lying/not fully genuine in a few answers. However, I at least attempted to address the issues, and unlike SND, I don't have a staff and members paying dues.)

No sympathy for the recent college grads, either, unless they were flat-out lied to about what they would be doing. I have no doubt many of these people were trumpeting how they were working at a big metro and would be "reshaping journalism," etc. Optimism is great; full-blown delusion that usually includes crapping on more solid work of the past is another.
