‘Tech Talk’ Shuttered
Tech Talk, the MIT News Office’s official newspaper, plans to run its last issue tomorrow.
As part of the News Office’s merger of resources with MIT’s Technology Review magazine, the office intends to focus on a new web site that will replace Tech Talk, called “MIT News.”
Several staff have been let go from the News Office recently as part of this realignment. Merely ceasing to print Tech Talk will save the News Office $80,000 per year in printing costs alone.
