Goodbye

Today we turn our dagger around and point it at ourselves.

As goes the Internet Economy, so goes the magazine founded to cover it. Yesterday the Industry Standard announced that it is ceasing publication. The magazine’s Web site said the company will “maintain its online editorial coverage while it seeks a buyer,” but only a skeleton crew of six to 20 employees will remain. The parent company, Standard Media International, is expected to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection shortly.
