How to Take the Money and Run

Howdy all,

Yeah, know it’s been a while since we rapped at ya, but not much seems to be going on at the Demand, er, excuse me, Studio D front.

Pretty funny. If you told me 5 years ago I’d still be updating this site, I would have laughed.

I logged into Studio D the other day just for the fun of it only to find the queues all empty. So sad. I still remember the glory days of writing ten articles on the same subject.

Maybe that’ll stir up some comments. Back in the day (let’s say 2009-2010), what was the most articles you were able to write in a day? I think I peaked out at about 8.

Special thanks to DMSIPO IPODMS for the update….speaking of DMSIPO, looks like Demand Stock is down to about $5/share. Quite a bit off from the heady days when it was over $500/share. I guess we all know who made out there…

According to his Linkedin Profile, he’s now Editorial and Quality Assurance Manager at … ready for it … About.com!

Talk about a leopard not being able to change his spots. He REALLY went to another content mill after almost a decade of wading in that slime?

Poor guy.

In other news, Jordan Decker apparently also got shit-canned.

Demand Media Closes Austin Office

bartonsprings1Woah. Thanks to special commenter “Thanks” (lol) for this

Demand Closing Austin Offices 

There’s a bit of “clarification” there from Demand, but it’s still a done deal.

Sorry for everyone losing their jobs. But think of it as just extra time at Barton Springs.

 

 

Breaking News – This is The End

Is Demand Studios closed for good? […]

Demand Says Buh-Bye to eHow?

The beginning of the end?

Yep. Looks like Demand is selling off eHow.

Sad days.

I wonder “e-How” the assignment queue is doing?

I’m just glad that Richard picked me up a Demand Studios t-shirt while they were available.

 

Drop the Zero and Get with the Hero!

Hey kids!

It’s summertime. That means we’re on vacation. Just like Demand! LOL. Found this letter stuck in our letterbox. Looks like we might be around after Demand is gone! But don’t feel too bad. All the Execs cashed out long ago.

Once again there are ZERO titles to claim at Demand Studios! Take a look at the flimsy, sugar coated BS they are telling contributors now.

Hi everyone,

Two weeks ago I announced that we were making some changes to better support eHow’s overall editorial strategy. While that effort is still underway, we’ve determined that our best option going forward is to have a smaller number of contributors […]

Is Demand Still Gaming Google?

Howdy all – sorry for the delay. Been lots of craziness in the Demand Sucks world, but it looks like we have the website back under control. Just so that we all know what the score is, here’s some prices to remind you: 

DMD IPO Price 2011: $23.59 Current DMD price 2015: $6.58 

Of course, that current price is after a couple of splits, so I’ll leave all the financial mumbo jumbo up to you DSSers or Richard Head if he ever decides to show up again. 

Anyway, thanks for all the emails. Here’s a guest post from DSSer “Bob Smith”. 

Demand Media Studios was founded on one principle – […]
