Ziff Davis is Changing ExtremeTech

Posted on June 26, 2009

ExtremeTechZiff Davis is closing its reportedly changing its ExtremeTech website. Venture Beat writes that Ziff Davis will focus on its other tech websites instead, such as PCMag.com. A final column has been published on ExtremeTech.com here called "The Last Column."
ExtremeTech is changing. The current staff: writers Jason Cross and Joel Durham, producers Jeremy Atkinson and Mike Nguyen, our enthusiastic forum moderator, Jim Lynch, plus your truly, will be leaving Ziff-Davis at the end of this week. Executive Editor Jeremy Kaplan (former editor of ExtremeTech Magazine) will take over management and editorial direction for the site.

That means this is the last Notes from the Basement column, at least, the last one hosted by Ziff-Davis. So be warned: this column may be long-not because these are all my words.
There's also a sing off notice from Jim Lynch on the website. Reuters says the website has about 200,000 monthly uniques.
