We’ll keep updating with Twitter news, but if you know of anyone else who got dumped by BusinessWeek (as Joseph says), drop us a line
Update: More tweets after the jump
Longtime technology writer Stephen Baker is also out.
Baker also posted some insight into the BusinessWeek layoffs on his blog:
“I just took the elevator to the 46th floor and got my termination from BusinessWeek. Bloomberg has not offered me a job, and I’ll be leaving this one, after nearly 23 years, on Dec. 1.
This was not a big surprise for me. I had made clear my mixed feelings. So off I go. It doesn’t mean I won’t be sad to leave, and today is a wrenching day to be in our offices. People troop upstairs and come back carrying different kinds of envelopes.”
Update: RaceTalkBlog, which is keeping a running tally of today’s layoffs, reports that senior writer Steve Hamm, associate editor Heather Green, Silicon Valley bureau chief Rob Hof and Seattle bureau chief Jay Greene have also been let go.
