This is truly a sad day.
The internet advertising model is a broken one, and I'm afraid that if real news can't be obtained through the web, or in magazines, we're truly looking at dark times.
Many journalists are out of work (myself, I moved back to the development community about a year ago) and there seems to be no hope on the horizon. Somethings gotta give, folks. We have to find some way to fund the things we love, or they're going to go away.
I'd like to thank Jon Corbet (& crew) for the years of fine service this site provided. The Linux device drivers book is a good read too. Someday there will be some kind of advertising or other breakthrough, and hopefully people who are passionate about the news will be able to make a living at it.
