Richard Delevan is no longer Business Editor of the Sunday Tribune after being fired this morning. Rumours were going around today that staff in le Trib were told he was kicked out. Allegedly he was told sling his er hook over an an article he wrote about an auctioneer who couldn’t sell his own gaff. It’s all the fault of A Randow Walk. 🙂 (The post I linked to is gone now. Ooops) Also mentioned on Property Pin. (Being clear, I’m not actually blaming A Random Walk or Property Pin, I was being sarcy.)
Of course I’m biased on this. Richard gave me a job in the Tribune in January this year doing what I do on this blog, writing about things that interest me. I’ve never enjoyed myself more. Easiest person I’ve ever worked for and he’s encouraged me so much and helped me improve how I write about things. It’s a shame I won’t be working with him as much because everytime we chat I’m more enthusiastic than ever about technology. At least he can go back to writing his blog and book.
