As for the move to Seattle, that will be under editor-in-chief Joshua Vanderwall, who appears to be the last man standing.
Quoting the Forbes article:
While Defy is calling the number of employees affected “small” my own source tells me that “Every full-time staff member has been laid off there, from editors to artists to the IT team.”Damn shame.
For those wondering, yes, it's the same +Alexander Macris from Autarch. Hopefully they can keep paying the bills and rebound in the future.
