While Everyone Else is Cutting Staff: Scoble and Fast Company Say “Let’s Hire More”

By Kyle Austin


As I noted in my last blog on The Wire, everyone in the newspaper and publication industry is cutting staff and being told to “do more with less.”  Well apparently this doesn’t apply to Robert Scoble and Fast Company.  He’s got the green light to hire more staff from his new employer.  This is really Scoble’s reasoning behind crossing the line and letting advertisers onto his new Fast Company TV venture.  I’m sure many folks getting into the online video segment market will be taking notes including GigaOm and CNNMoney.com.  Although one wonders if Scoble will be able to score top notch guests like Om has been able to.
