Chas Edwards was co-founder at Federated Media (with John Battelle), where he served as publisher and chief revenue officer (CRO). As CRO at Digg he helped launch the first native ad product for social news feeds. He’s also held executive management posts at CNET Networks, mySimon, and Luminate, and worked in book publishing, magazines and cable TV along the way. He writes on advertising and digital publishing at All Things D, Ad Age, Adweek, Techdirt, and ChasNote. He’s currently at work on a new top-secret project.
It’s been said “The sun never sets on the editorial offices at ChasNote.” And just as frequently there have been reports of massive layoffs and ruthless, unwarranted firings of that same staff. The ChasNote public affairs office offers no comment on either.
