tgtanman writes “CNN reports that MySpace has announced that it has laid off 500 employees, 47% of its total staff. From the article: ‘MySpace’s management kept most of the site’s developers but gutted nearly every other job role, according to a staffer who survived the cuts … “Today’s tough but necessary changes were taken in order to provide the company with a clear path for sustained growth and profitability,” CEO Mike Jones said in a written statement. “These changes were purely driven by issues related to our legacy business, and in no way reflect the performance of the new product.”‘”
