10% of the staff gets the boot at Wikia

Written by David Stellmack

Will need an infusion of cash soon to keep going

I guess we should have seen this coming, but a friend of a regular mole has emailed to say that Wikia has let 10 percent of its staff go. According to the friend of our mole, the for-profit startup company that was a derivative of Wikipedia looks to be running low on funds.

After last receiving venture capital in December 2006, the company was able to raise over $14 million in funding. The Wikia products are pretty unpopular and, in fact, many people don’t even know that they exist as resources.

Our suspicion is that they are going to need an infusion of cash to continue, and the technology and tools that the company has developed just don’t seem to be generating a lot of interest; and while it is obvious that they have some good ideas and talented people, it just might not be the proper business model to generate revenue.
