flickr was quicker: newspaper editor layoff posted on flickr

““I leave with great sadness, but not a trace of bitterness.We all know what is happening to the newspaper industry, and it is not pretty. Even though this is officially termed a “reduction in force,” I am surprised and dismayed that the organization thinks it can have a future without me. To be honest, I thought I’d get the chance to help lead the paper where it needed to go to compete successfully in the digital age.”
SF Chronicle newspaper editor John Curley, posting to his flickr account upon his layoff from the newspaper.
