BusinessWeak

Latest issue of BusinessWeek arrived and it's a doozy. Not.

Anyone else noticed? Was it just the end-of-year blues, all the usual companies pull out or run out of budget or . . . dealing with golf superstar scandals (Accenture)?

It's the leanest issue I believe I've ever seen. 68 slim pages, with very few ads. So few that one can turn page after page after page after page of articles without seeing an ad.

I wasn't even able to spend the normal five minutes pulling out all the two-sided ad pages and "special advertising sections" on why I ought to set up offices in [insert random country name here].

Did Bloomberg fire the sales team when they bought the magazine, or what?

Thinking of posting a comment to this blog entry? That's nice. But please note: As of January 19. 2014, I no longer review comments. So they will never appear. So don't bother. If you want to comment on something you read here, go to twitter and write your comment there and just include "@brianstorms" in the tweet. I am no longer moderating the comments here; I just assume everything is spam and Intense Debate seems to have abandoned support for its product.
