ignorant layoffs being made at 1up in the transition to newer (read:
even crappier) management and ownership. Starting over at Kotaku and
reading the list of names and the letter to employees, then following
links to Kelpeks post over at the Multiplayer blog, and 1up's own
announcement and finally some of the comments on that post (naturally
all of which lamenting the event).
Good luck to everyone. More later.
