Jobs go at Wired, Six Apart

So Wired just culled 25% of their staff (ouch) – mostly techies. Staff writers haven’t been touched apparently – they’ll just have to hold their website together with duct tape.
Meanwhile, SixApart – which sold blogging network LiveJournal earlier this year –  has cut 8% of staff (16 people) and its management have taken a 15% pay cut.
I know that a lot more media and new media jobs will go… but there are ways to do it. And the way you treat your staff in a downturn says a lot. My hat’s off to the SA management for taking the pay cut.
