Pink Slips Doled Out at The Daily As Former Tech Editor Reminisces

By now you’ve probably heard after two years, The Daily, the first news app for the iPad, is folding effective December 15.

According to the press release, its editor-in-chief, Jesse Angelo, will take the helm as publisher at the New York Post, and several staffers will switch to the newspaper as well.

Former tech editor Peter Ha revealed on Gizmodo:

“Troll all you want about News Corp — 90% of which is going to be wrong anyway — but a lot of good people were given pink slips today and that’s unfortunate. I imagine it’s going to suck to have to publish for another 12 days. I’m pouring one out for you, homies.” Read more

Daily Editor ‘Rallies The Troops’ With Somewhat Inflammatory Memo

Or so we think. New York has obtained a memo from iPad newspaper The Daily editor Jesse Angelo that is apparently supposed to be encouraging, but whatever.

Angelo wrote:
“We need to get out there and start finding more compelling stories from around the country – not just scraping the web and the wires, but getting out on the ground and reporting.”

Then he suggests:
“Find me something new, different, exclusive and awesome. Find me the oldest dog in America, or the richest man in South Dakota. Force the new White House press secretary to download The Daily for the first time because everyone at the gaggle is asking about a story we broke. Get in front of a story and make it ours – force the rest of the media to follow us.”

We’re just happy this guy isn’t our boss.

The Daily’s A Week Away

News Corp’s iPad newspaper, The Daily, will launch Wednesday with a party at the Guggenheim.

The staff of 100 (including such luminaries as Richard Johnson and Jesse Angelo of the New York Post and the New Yorker’s Sasha Frere-Jones have surely been working like crazy to get to this moment.

Will it work? Will people pay a buck a week? Will people even read that much on their iPads? Will The Daily’s social media strategist, Abigail Jones, have any luck Tweeting out links to stories if they’re unavailable to anyone but subscribers?

Until next Wednesday, nobody will know the answers to these questions. But we can’t wait to find out.
