Hired wired guns? The entire laid-off staff of ZDNet Tech Update has put themselves up for bid on eBay. In a way, it’s not unprecendented as custom publishing companies bundle and sell such collective skills. Need such services? Here’s where I recommend you start.
Another case (pre eBay) in which a similar en mass editorial hire took place was by Jake Winebaum when he started Family Fun Magazine with a core-team who had published a New England-based regional title. My recollections of the details are fuzzy, but the editorial staffing concept worked to get the magazine up and going…and sold.
