Pubsub Implosion

Blog search engine PubSub had massive layoffs today after last minute merger discussions with knownow fell apart. It looks like a shutdown is imminent.

Pubsub ousted founding CEO Salim Ismail in March after losing a power struggle with co-founder Bob Wyman. Constantine Gus Spathis took over as CEO before Salim’s announced departure.

Update: I made some corrections to the above post after Bob Wyman responded by comment below.
