Did Blogs Kill the NYT Tech Section?


Steve Rubel, a PR agent who studies how Weblogs interact with business, has found this rumor. 

Rumor has it, according to the New York Post, that The New York Times is said to be planning to end “Circuits” as a stand-alone section covering the high-tech world by the end of April. My immediate thought is – did the rising influence of the major gadget blogs like Engadget and Gizmodo play a role? This may be a sign of a coming shakeout in tech media.
