Media Unspun to Suspend Publication:


Media Unspun to Suspend Publication: As I had predicted, (sort of, at least) Media Unspun, the new avatar of Industry Standard-owned Media Grok, has suspended publication. The e-mail newsletter was reborn in January earlier this year, after the same editorial team who worked on the Grok had launched it again. “We launched a subscription- and advertising-supported email newsletter about the technology business during an economic slowdown that is having a particularly violent effect on the publishing, technology, and advertising industries. Despite the high quality of the newsletter, as evidenced by the feedback we receive every day, we can’t fight a hurricane.”

A sad day in the short history of subscription e-mail newsletters, indeed
