SCDSource, a grand experiment launched in reaction to the layoff of Richard Goering at EETimes, closed operations officially today. The site was launched shortly after I launched New Tech Press a couple of year ago at an EDAC meeting where Paul Miller of EETimes explained why the magazine was de-emphasizing EDA coverage. Paul took a lot of heat at that meeting, but his reasoning proved to be prophetic. The industry was just not interested in supporting coverage in any form. The publication was supported by some advertising and catalog revenue, but mostly by private investment from very hopeful people.
New Tech Press, BTW, is still around, still producing content, but still not focused on EDA alone.
