The Perl Journal: Under New Management

posted by pudge on 1999.05.07 2:58   Printer-friendly
According to an April 29 press release from EarthWeb reporting its 1Q 1999 financials, EarthWeb has acquired The Perl Journal. The company's SEC Filing of March 19, 1999 notes that the combined cost of the recent acquisitions of TPJ, the TPJ web site, and (an IT certification information service) was $980,000, with additional payments based on future performance of up to $500,000.

Jon Orwant, who remains as Editor of TPJ, said that "EarthWeb has assumed responsibility for production, advertising, marketing, distribution, order fulfillment, subscription services, design, and the web site of The Perl Journal." It is unclear what the precise impact of all of this will be. The next issue, #14, is currently in production.
