B-to-B magazines dropping like flies

If you follow the business-to-business publishing market, you know that last week Reed Business Information announced the closure of 23 publications. The company claimed that it couldn’t sell them… but it’s not clear if it really tried.

Not familiar with the story? Don’t know what it means for the publishing industry? Here are three links:

1. A news report on Apr. 16 by Folio’s Jason Fell

2. More reporting by Jason a few days later

3. And today’s barbed commentary by my business partner, Ted Bahr

Enjoy the stories!
