Balance in the media…

Business 2.0 has published a piece on how traditional media outlets such as the Wall Street Journal are adopting some of the practices pioneered by many of the failed dot-com online publishers.

While many of those pioneers are now gone the way of’s sock puppet, some have survived and begun to thrive, most notably Salon and Slate.

There are however some casualties of the downturn that I personally miss.  In particular; Red Herring and the Industry Standard. I am also sad enough to admit I still regularly trawl through the Industry Standard’s online archives reminiscing of a time when we were all upbeat and positive! Now that’s a long time ago.
