Macalope reports; "George Ou Laid Off" - that answers a reader email

Last week I received a reader email asking me about my take on Leander Kahney's latest article entitled; How Apple Got Everything Right By Doing Everything Wrong.

I don't have a take because I decided that unless something VERY interesting came about, I no longer published stories and gave attention to anything from the list of GOONS that I identified in The 7 Goons Of The Mac World.

Well I think something happened very interesting to a goon ... word on Twitter as reported by The Macalope says that George Ou was laid off from C|Net.

* The Macalope got it's start by critiquing Ou and I made the mistake of thinking The Macalope WAS George Ou.

And as reported last week; Steven Levy is heading for WIRED magazine and may be taking Leander Kahney's place.

I think C|Net is wising up to see exactly who is making them the laughing stock with various contributors reporting.

Update 3/28/08: George Ou has confirmed it with his last post on C|Net
