IDG Merges CXO Media with Network World

IDG has combined CXO Media and Network World into a single organization called CXO Media Network World. Michael Friedenberg is CEO and president of the new group; Network World's John Gallant is executive VP and GM. The new organization, in part, is modeled after IDG's PCW Communications, which houses PC World and MacWorld under one corporate roof.

No layoffs have resulted, though IDG seeks to develop "shared services" that may produce a few down the line.

If you've seen PCMag.com's Security Watch blog or eWeek's Cheap Hack -- you've seen security expert Larry Seltzer at work. He specializes in spam and viruses but blogs about much more than that. He's a bit of a curmudgeon, but a lovable one. Trust us. :-)

RSS-as-Battleground for the IT Trades

The IT trades compete in many ways, and one of them is with RSS. How many feeds does each title provide? How are they segmented?

We've been studying this lately and here are some nuggets for you:

* eWeek/Ziff Davis Enterprise has 137 feeds, just nine more than Computerworld at 128. Network World has 71, InfoWorld only 21 and InformationWeek even less than that at 19. What a gap! We'll examine additional IT destinations in subsequent SWMS research.

Paula Musich, Lisa Vaas, Peter Galli, Steven J. Vaughn-Nichols and Renee Boucher Ferguson were among those laid off this week at Ziff Davis Enterprise (ZDE), according to sources inside the company.

The departures came after ZDE quarterly revenues fell far below the levels expected by Insight Venture Partners, the company that bought ZDE in 2007.
