Never let it be said our columnists can't see the forest for the trees. In this issue, our contributing arborist, D. Eadward Tree, offers a frank assessment of the threat facing traditional magazine publishers (see page 18). According to Mr. Tree, it's not the Zites and Flipboards of the world releasing magazine-like products on the iPad, nor hoary tech behemoths such as AOL and Yahoo pushing further into the content space.

July 25, 2008

TechTarget, the Needham, Mass.-based tech media company, announced yesterday its second quarter financial results and lowered its revenue forecast for the rest of the year by $10 million.

While IPOs have not vanished all together in the years since the dot-com frenzy of the late ’90s—March saw 21 filings, according to IPOHome.com—they have been few and far between in the publishing sector. “I’ve actually seen the trend move backwards,” says Michael Norris, senior analyst at Simba Information, which tracks the media and publishing industries. For example, Norris notes, “[Religious book publisher] Thomas Nelson was bought by a

Fueling the ‘Fire of Quick Action’
February 1, 2008

This is our first issue of the new year, and while joyous well-wishings of “happy New Year!” have likely (or hopefully!) abounded in our personal circles for the past month, it is more likely that professional thoughts in the publishing world were more along the lines of wishes for a “not-unhappy New Year.” As an industry, we’ve got our challenges cut out for us this year, that’s for sure. Many of us are feeling the impacts of the postal rate increases, financing woes and “the great, big paper mess” (as someone I know called it) we’re in, and we’re all facing forecasts of a
