Thursday, August 20, 2009 is hiring and firing

Valleywag reports that, which has an office in San Francisco, has laid off six employees, or 20 percent of its staff.

The SF Business Times reports that Salon’s premium subscriptions have been dropping from a high of approximately 89,100 on Dec. 31, 2004, to about 21,700 as of June 30, and the business guesses that those memberships will continue to decline to about 16,000 by March 31, 2010.

According to Valleywag, those let go were:
    Jeanne Carstensen, managing editor
    Kevin Berger, features editor
    Katharine Mieszkowski, senior writer
    Joy Press, culture editor
    Caitlin Shamberg, multimedia editor
    Julie Coburn, photo editor
BTW, Salon is still hiring. Openings include "art director/senior designer" and "Senior Web engineer." And they're looking for interns.
