Layoffs continue at Redmond

A sign of continuing financial pressures on the traditional book publishing market came in last week’s decision to layoff all the Microsoft Press editorial staff. These individuals were responsible for bringing Microsoft Press book projects through from initial concept to final publication and are well respected in the industry. The work is now likely to be done on an outsourced basis, probably in association with Pearson, who already handles the distribution of Microsoft Press titles. It is a sad day for a part of Microsoft that has contributed so much to the advancement of learning about the company’s technology since 1984.
