Goodbye Old Friend

One of my favorite industry insider pubs has gone to magazine heaven.  Training Magazine and its website is no more after last month’s issue.  I knew it was sick when the issues got smaller and smaller.  While I hoped that the community could live via the Internet, owner Neilsen Business Media is getting out of the trade publishing business.

Moral of the story:  even a well-respected expo, industry conference and a subscription base of 45,000 couldn’t save this platform.  Will be interesting to see what happens in the vacuum Training leaves behind.
