Blognation finally folded today. I have no idea which side of the story is true and which parts are false, but it doesn’t really matter. I won’t link back to all the posts, there would be too many to go back and find.
Tris Hussey has been blogging at ca.blognation.com since April (I believe — I can’t seem to tell from the site). Tris has done a fantastic job of covering Canadian tech startups and has given us especially great coverage of West Coast startups. He has also scooped us on a few great stories.
I am bummed that Tris won’t be blogging about Canadian startups for the next while at least. Canada is losing out on this one, for now at least. It was the editors/writers of Blognation who got the worst end of the deal.
Tris has posted that he is looking for full time work, specifically as a community manager. I have heard from a few companies recently that are looking to hire someone in the same type of position, so I am pretty sure that it won’t take long for Tris to land on his feet, considering his depth of experience in building communities and in the blogging tools space.
