Typepad is apparently offering a bailout package for journalists:  a free Typepad Pro account, and access to their ad network.  This is a brilliant way to buy talent on the cheap for them, and possibly reap rewards for years to come.  And yet, also a good deal for the journalist--one of those win-win voluntary exchanges that free market types are always nattering on about.  So if you're a print journalist in trouble (and who isn't--a local wag recently suggested that the New York Observer ought to change its name to "The Daily Layoff") it might be worth checking out.
