Although it was founded in 1981, Osicom Technologies Inc. is essentially a new company. Originally a supplier of disk drive components, the Santa Monica firm entered the red-hot data-networking business in 1993 with the acquisition of Meret Optical Communications Inc. Since then, Osicom has acquired six more companies--four of them in 1996--and positioned itself as a provider of a broad range of products used to route information over the Internet and other computer networks.

"Look at this," Chada laments, rifling through articles about "ER" star Margulies, Oscar hype and teenage homophobia in Los Angeles high schools. "There are no 'must reads' here." Chada is more than a disappointed reader. She is the new majority owner of Buzz, the struggling 8-year-old magazine about Los Angeles.

Employees in Buzz's West Los Angeles offices were assembled Tuesday, informed that Buzz was closing and asked to clear out of their offices by day's end. The magazine's June issue, already completed, will be Buzz's last.
