Business 2.0 Too Tired?

Magazines fail all the time, but it’s hard not to look at them as signs of something larger. MacWEEK‘s fizzle was claimed to represent the demise of the Mac, Computer Shopper has lost more weight than a Slim Fast spokesmodel (800 pages to 80 in ten years!). And now Business 2.0 Magazine is shutting down and sending cancellation notices to readers.

Perhaps the lesson here is that there’s nothing too 2.0 about stories that suggest you buy low and sell high?

  1. I’d dropped Business 2.0 a while back when it became clear that the editorial stance was “ethical=$”–when they were applauding domain-parking and splogs as hot business ventures.

    As for Computer Shopper: I didn’t even realize they were still around.

  2. @walt:

    I subscribed for a short time after it was launched, but the dot com mania grew tiresome. Judging by their covers, once the bubble burst they had very little to go on.
