Business 2.0’s future in question?
It’s not uncommon this year to see news of publications shutting down or having ongoing layoffs, but this morning’s story in the New York Times about the uncertain fate of Business 2.0 is disturbing. Brad Stone’s article suggests that declining ad revenues are the cause for current discussions about the fate of the publication.
Time Inc. would be crazy to abandon Business 2.0. It’s safe to say that anyone who follows emerging technology trends, venture capital and startups, or people with hopes of sometime starting their own business will likely agree. My daily blogs and news sites are great, but we need a publication like Business 2.0 that can give us trusted and in-depth features that provide a look into the future. Business 2.0 is one of a kind in its areas of coverage, and for what it’s worth, it was one of the first mainstream publications to start paying attention to clean tech.
Time Inc. should not step away from one of Silicon Valley’s greatest publications.
