AP Shutting Down asap

asap.jpgThe Associated Press’ asap service just got the axe. Started in 2005 as a gen-y oriented service attempt to lure the kids back to print newspapers through short sentences, video and a college paper-like A&E section, it apparently wasn’t luring in enough advertisers. The last day of operations for asap is October 31; layoff status is currently unknown.

Which is too bad: asap provided a steady home for AP stringers to sell podcast & video content as well.
