UPDATE FOR THOSE HITTING THIS (OLD) POST NOW… IN APRIL OF 2009 WHILE LOOKING FOR DIRT ABOUT SOME JULIA “THE UNDERTAKER” WALLACE MEMO: THIS AJC-IS-TANKING STUFF IS OLD NEWS. I’M NOT WASTING ONE MORE DIGIT OF TEXT (AND NEVER VID!) WRITING ABOUT SOMETHING THAT LOSES ONE MILLION DOLLARS A WEEK. YOU WERE LED OFF A CLIFF BY INSANELY UNVISIONARY AND ARROGANT LEADERSHIP. IT HAPPENS TO ALL OF US FROM TIME TO TIME. NOW WIPE YOUR TEARS, DUST YOURSELF OFF, AND START CLIMBING OUR OF THE RAVINE. IF THERE IS ANYTHING I CAN DO TO HELP, I KNOW A SOME GOOD WEB DESIGNERS. EMAIL ME.
My my my! How the hot line here at MM filled right up when I took-off to Land of The Dueling Banjos for a few days off da grid. Among the most interesting in the tip jar upon returning home to the ATL was a note on how a whopping 73 buyouts were accepted by the AJC last Friday, a rather huge-normous number. And right after that, the AJC had to promptly fire three of their “anointed ones” editors.
Apparently the editors were apprehended passing along (presumably to outsiders) some AJC market research data that were being compiled for the paper’s big re-design to that AJC Two Points To Zero campaign. (AJC 2.0. That’s the yadayadayada hype Julia Wallace is always issuing memos about. As the rest of the world yawns and moves beyond 3.0)
UPDATE to this little number here.
