During the hey day of the tech boom, several publications such as The Industry Standard, Upside, ForbesASAP and Red Herring
arrived in my mailbox. As the NASDAQ hit its pre-burst at 5,000, my
issues were chock full of great stories about amazing companies with
millions of dollars behind them – many of them based on a whim, an
idea, or lunch at Buck’s in Silicon Valley.
And then the bubble struck. And so did many of the magazines, along
with their advertisers. Of all of the titles listed above, one did
make a reasonable comeback: Red Herring. You can read their online content, but I suggest you subscribe to the printed version.
Last summer when I was in Israel for the Israel Venture Capital Association Conference, I happened to run into Joel Dreyfus, Editor in Chief. Joel has been at several publications such as InformationWeek and PC Magazine where I first met him in the early 90’s.
Joel has done an outstanding job of bringing this magazine to life and telling a story about about the business of technology.
