The Foster City company is now hiring managers with extensive publishing experience. Co-founder/publisher Anthony Perkins retains only fund-raising duties and a seat on the board. Co-founder/editor Richard Karlgaard has left, saying that poor ad revenues forced repeated venture capitalization until his 30% share was cut to under 1%.
