Sacked blogger vows to continue

Apparently sacked and walked to the door from his job at Auckland-based publisher AGM Publishing, blogger Isaac Hindin Miller is vowing to continue his Isaac Likes blog.

Hinden Miller was not prepared to comment on the details of his dismissal from AGM but was prepared to talk about his blogging and plans for the future.

“The reason I like blogging is because you can get news across immediately. If something happens you can write it up straight away,” he says.

It was that immediate ability to break news that appears to have landed him in strife after he blogged about changes at ACP Media's digital division last week. Hindin Miller, who was working as market editor for AGM's Urbis magazine, was allegedly dismissed last Friday with zero benefits and marched to the door by publisher Parul Sheopuri.

Sheopuri refused to comment further on the dismissal when contacted by Computerworld.

Hinden miller's blog report was followed by various media including Computerworld. ACP Media's CEO Paul Dykzeul slammed the reports, suggesting the publisher planned to close down some of its websites, as "defamatory and incorrect".

The New Zealand Herald subsequently reported that the company retrenched eight to10 staff and is shuttering three sites, Runway Reporter, metrolive.co.nz and yourhomeandgarden.co.nz - with cleo.co.nz and taste.co.nz to be outsourced to JV partner, msn.com. The websites of the Trader division, which includes the titles Auto Trader, Deals on Wheels, Motorcyle Trader and News, Trade-a-Boat and Buy, Sell & Exchange remain unaffected.

Hindin Miller mainly writes about the fashion industry in New Zealand and overseas.

“I also write a bit about films and do interviews with designers and models.”
