San Diego News Network, the online publication that laid off its free lancers at the end of May, has come out with a description of "the new SDNN." For the life of me, I can't tell how it differs from the severely ailing old SDNN, with one exception: the new SDNN doesn't have the talent the old one had. Chief Executive Neil Senturia says the new SDNN will cover San Diego and Southern California news "from the sublime to the ridiculous"; diverse views on issues and people; arts and sports, and lists featuring places to eat and play. Missing are contributions that the free lancers once made. (Don Bauder)

Looks like the new sdnn is the old sdnn but without wire services and original news gathering. they seem to have a few people writing little summaries to UT stories. Don, looks like sdnn might not be worth covering any more. It was only significant as potential contender against SignOn.

Response to post #1: It appears to me that SDNN tried to do what SignOn is doing, but without anywhere near the adequate resources. Now it has slashed what little resources it had. Bad model, badly executed -- or so it seems. Best, Don Bauder
