Paper Cuts blog maps journalism job losses in US

Erica Smith, blogger at Paper Cuts and newspaper and multimedia designer at the St Louis Post-Dispatch, has mapped the job losses across the US newspaper industry this year.

Pins in the Google map are colour-coded to show how many jobs lost in each instance and can be clicked for more details of the redundancies.

The total so far for 2008 is 3,020 and rising, the blog states.

Depressing viewing, but the map gives a good snapshot of the state of the industry.
