Salve-Thursday's Guardian Tech

One of the casualties of the Guardian media groups cost cutting will be the stand alone Technology section on a Thursday.

It ceases publication on the 17th December as Charles Arthur explains in today's edition it won't signal the end of the paper's championing of the subject.

The final issue will mark just over 26 continuous years since Futures Micro Guardian had its first edition, on 20 October 1983. From then, you will continue to find our writing online, or through our Twitter feed, and also throughout the paper incarnations of the Guardian in the news, business, features and other sections, where we will have a renewed focus on bringing you our take on the technology issues that truly matter and which you should know about.

and as Arthur continues to say

In part it has been the internet that has hastened the end of the physical version of this section, as more classified job adverts have migrated to online job sites such as Guardian Jobs (, in case you're looking); there have also been the arctic winds of the recession, which seems to be hitting the UK harder than many other countries around the world.
