Brill Media's Contentville Web site shuts down

Published on .

New York--Brill Media Holdings L.P. has shut down its Contentville Web site, but is sticking with the quarterly business publication Brill's Content. The 15 staffers who worked on the site have been let go with severance. In a memo to staffers last Friday, Brill Media founder Steve Brill said that while the recent terrorist attacks, as well as the demise of the dot-com economy, contributed to the shutdown, ultimately, "my idea for Contentville just didn't work." Contentville, founded in July 2000, was part of Media Central, which is owned by Primedia Inc.
