SDNN Will Go It Alone, Change Focus

San Diego News Network, the troubled online publication that was trying to sell itself, has now said that it will remain under current ownership, Neil Senturia and his wife, associate publisher Barbara Bry. In a message, Bry said SDNN would change focus, and the change would be obvious in a matter of weeks. Earlier, Senturia had said the publication would try to make it with a smaller team. On May 28 SDNN told all its free lancers, who provide the bulk of original copy, that they were through as of May 31.

i wish them luck Don

Response to post #1: A lot of talent is gone. Best, Don Bauder

June 13, 2010

More to the point, a lot of talent is unemployed.

June 13, 2010

Response to post #3: Most of them were grossly underpaid free lancers. I don't know that they are now considered unemployed officially. Best, Don Bauder

June 13, 2010

Ha! All of us freelancers are grossly underpaid! It's a labor of love.

June 13, 2010

Response to post #5: That mentality could rescue SDNN -- sort of. Free lancers could work for nothing, or almost nothing. Best, Don Bauder

June 14, 2010

This is senturia's spin on "We couldn't GIVE this thing away"

June 14, 2010

Response to post #7: It looks that way. You never know. Best, Don Bauder

June 14, 2010

They don’t call it “free” lancing for nothing. And a consultant is just a polite way of saying unemployed.

June 15, 2010

Anybody got a decent website to get san Diego News?

June 15, 2010

Response to post #9: Good points. Best, Don Bauder

June 15, 2010

Response to post #10: There is only one place to get skeptical, accurate reportage: SanDiegoReader.com. Best, Don Bauder

June 15, 2010

Response to post #11: You must be kidding. Best, Don Bauder

RE #13:

I only wish I had more time for research on California public utilities before blogging here...

OK... I also wish I was paid to blog, but that's wishing for too much!

June 15, 2010

Response to post #15: There is lots available on California public utilities -- most of it rather depressing, because the PUC represents the interests of the utilities, not the ratepayers. Best, Don Bauder

June 15, 2010

OK... I also wish I was paid to blog, but that's wishing for too much

A dream job!

June 16, 2010

A response to post #17: It depends how much you're paid. Best, Don Bauder
