From the cover: “It was not that long ago that The Industry Standard was an international publishing phenomenon. Founded in 1998 with the grandiose goal of being “the BusinessWeek of the Internet economy”, it soared to unprecedented heights during the dot-corn boom, with far-flung bureaus, a thriving conference business, and a seemingly endless supply of cash. In 2000 alone, The Standard published more than 7,000 ad pages — more than any other magazine in the history of America — and in its brief lifetime it generated revenues of over $200 million.
