The Times closes Interface tech section

Inspired by happenings in IT industry no doubt

The Times newspaper has decided to close its IT supplement, Interface.

A little peculiar, you may think, seeing as IT news has never been such a big issue in the media, but apparently this is precisely the reason behind it - the paper wants the stories for the main sections of the paper. That and the fact that hardly anyone was advertising in the supplement, we hear.

The journalists on the supplement are to be offered other jobs at the paper. The future for its freelancers is not so secure.

So there you have it. ®
