As reported by Leo Laporte in The Laporte Report and nearly every blogger on the internet, it would seem G4 has put a hundred or more California residents into the unemployment line. Great. Thanks, G4. Like it wasn't hard enough before this to find a decent job in this over-priced state.

I never saw a complete episode of Tech TV. I only get basic cable. As someone who already spends too much time at my computer, I don't need more than that. Expanded cable would be a waste, or major distraction, neither of which is good. However, I do, in a sense, work for Chris Pirillo Lockergnome forums, so I hear a lot of the gossip about the show anyway. Like out of 285 employees, only about 80 will be needed in L.A. However, and I have no inside knowledge regarding this, I found it interesting that Chris was brought back to the show a couple of weeks ago for a guest appearance...or was it an audition? Tech TV moves to L.A., Chris lives near L.A. Coincidence? You decide. Meanwhile, I may have better conversation in the unemployment line over the next few weeks.
