IDG is shuttering the print section of their MacWorld publication. While there website will continue to exist and publish information, their print publication will cease to exist.
Dan Miller, the editor of the magazine posted a note on Twitter about staying on for another month with the company, while others like Jason Snell also announced their own departures. Snell had been a writer with the magazine for the past 17 years.
Another MacWorld writer, Ted Landau posted a number of messages on Twitter confirming the closure and the feelings of many at the magazine.
Many publications have been ending their print runs of late with the success of the online magazines. However, with competition stiff in that realm, MacWorld will be hard pressed to continue achieving the same level of success, especially in light of the fact that most of the staff who worked on the print publication have been let go.
