WSJ: Industry Standard to shut down. “They don’t drink the Kool-Aid over there,” one banker said, meaning that reporters and editors hadn’t bought into the excesses of the dot-com mania.
Two milestones in a day. Be and now the Standard.
I have few “must-read” magazines on my list anymore, but the Industry Standard has been one. During its heyday I could’t begin to read it all, but I did find it a reliable source of information about an economy I didn’t fully understand.
I’ll miss it.
