    One stop was stuck in a prolonged transition between content management systems. They’re like quarterbacks: when you have two, you have none. Saxotech appears to be the Vinny Testaverde of the CMS world.

    I remember my old shop moved to it in 2012 and it was pretty jarring to me. The difference of working on an off-site server (Atlanta?) was obvious.

    Wasn't there supposed to be another big round of layoffs in early February?

    I'm very glad if there weren't, but wondering if anyone has heard anything.

    IT in the region is based out of our office and the rumor is they are getting cut at the end of the month. Nothing in newsroom or sales on our end though.

    GCI closed at $6.99 a share on Jan. 16. As of a few minutes ago, it was down to $3.75.

    Looking at a Gannett website, it's hard to figure out how much advertising is local and how much is just generic junk that appears piped in from national. I'm guessing the local papers don't get "credit" for the national stuff.

    From a friend who works at new Gannett - national staffers now have access to every paper's Facebook page and are pushing homogenized, national stories in an attempt to market viral content. It has not gone over well.
