Valcon Towers is a-changin'...
It seems that, as the legal ruminations and cogitations continue over the future of VNU, it's starting to become clear that all looking pretty bleak for some of our best known tech journos.
The rumours have begun that up to 25% of staff currently working across VNU's range of titles may find themselves out of work come the end of the summer. How true this is remains to be seen and it's, as yet, unclear which titles will suffer the most. Some would argue that many can little afford to lose any more decent staffers as it feels like the company has only just recovered from the last rash - many will remember the departure of Steve Ranger, Colin Barker et al.
On the flipside, however, there is a sniff of a suggestion of a revival of the ill-fated VNU Newdesk......it didn't work first time around.....the rumour is that those in the know want to cherrypick some of the best from around the business to make a go of it. Watch this space.
