IDG today relaunched an online-only version of The Industry Standard. The print edition ended its run in 2001.
“What we wanted to do was bring The Standard back online only. A print component wouldn’t make sense,” said Derek Butcher, the online publication’s vice president and general manager. “We’ll be covering the same topic area in terms of the online economy and the business of the Internet, which of course has grown quite a bit since the original Industry Standard was around. We really want to be true to the editorial integrity and professionalism and quality analysis of the original Industry Standard; we want to provide the what and the why, rather than just the what.” [Source]
