    ‘Portfolio’ Still Looking Elsewhere for InspirationHave you noticed that all of the news about the Great Condé Nast Reshuffling of 2008 has emerged from Women’s Wear Daily? It’s becoming the mouthpiece of the company’s HR department. (Or maybe the news is all a little too boring for anyone else to care about.) After a week of updates about shifts and firings on the business side at Condé titles Vogue, Golf Digest, Lucky, Teen Vogue, and The New Yorker, WWD today tells us about Portfolio (this month’s cover pictured here). Apparently the business mag’s editor, Joanne Lipman, tapped recently departed Post metro editor, Dan Colarusso, to run its growing Website. Also, to fill new Portfolio publisher William Li’s absence at Men’s Vogue, Condé looked within its walls to Details associate publisher, Marc Berger. We’d walk you through all of the changes that came last week, but the most telling detail is already above: While the rest of Condé Nast continues to recruit talent only from inside the company, Portfolio continues to look outside for fresh ideas!

    Breaking: ‘House & Garden’ Finally FoldsWe’re hearing that Conde Nast’s design-porn title House & Garden has shuttered, and that staffers had no warning. Just after we heard the news, WWD is reporting the same thing. Oh no! Where are we going to learn about how to make an entirely fieldstone interior wall in our Suffolk, UK, country home now? Update: A staffer tells us that editors were still making longterm assignments as of Friday, so it was a big surprise. Man, that’s gotta sting like a bee from your clay tile artisinal beehive!
