Bubblewatch: The Industry Standard Is Coming Back – Bits – Technology – New York Times Blog
Brad Stone at the Times blogs about the Industry Standard rising from the grave at IDG. I’d love to hear a candid take from the veterans of those days, but I don’t know about the predictive market thing. Never bought into that model, saw it at the MIT Technology Review and it never engaged me. Wonder if it revives into print as well as online.
“As if we needed any more evidence that the bubble is back in Silicon Valley, technology media company IDG plans to revive that hallmark publication of the dot.com era, the Industry Standard. (See previous reports of the revival here and here.)”I hear that IDG has hired San Francisco PR firm Porter Novelli to assist with the hunt for an editor-in-chief. Solicitations to interview for the job, along with the requisite non-disclosure agreement, are currently going out to Bay Area journalists with a technology background.”
