The Pathfinder site has been the subject of much criticism of late. HotWired, in a recent article, called the site unwieldy and disorganized. Indeed, Pathfinder is at work on its latest redesign in what has become an ongoing attempt to make sense of all its disparate content areas.
In addition to all of the Time Inc. magazines and Warner properties, Pathfinder includes an assortment of material from outside the Time Warner stable: news from CMP Publications, interactive-related newsletters, etc.
Staff turmoil has persisted as well. In February, Pathfinder Editor Jim Kinsella left in what was called a ``personnel issue.'' Also departing: Maria Wilhelm, another Pathfinder editorial executive.
