Business 2.0 Loses to Business 1.0

I read in the NY Times today that Business 2.0, a magazine I subscribe to, is publishing its last edition next month (October, 2007). I really enjoy their writing and the arrangement of their information. But what I really like is the attitude. The magazine comes off young, or at least optimistic. I found it to be a little more business oriented than Wired but still have many of the same angles.

One of their articles, The Coming Job Boom, by Paul Kaihla is part of the inspiration to write this blog. Much of the information in it is now up to debate since several years has passed, but the concepts are still relevant – the baby boomers will retire. The article can probably be rewritten but focused on a Leadership gap instead of purely on employment numbers.

To the writers of Business 2.0, thank you for putting together a splendid magazine and I hope you well in the future. I will keep an eye out for your work.

About benleeson
My name is Ben Leeson. I currently work for a large financial company in IT. I went to school at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY. I graduated with a B.S. in Business Administration concentrating in HR. Professor William Brown taught me and I enjoyed his classes; even acquiring an appreciation for just about all things HR. I didn’t pursue a job in that field after college but I’ve kept up with it. This blog will further my fascination with all things HR. I hope to grow my knowledge of the area through thoughtful writings and spirited feedback. I will attempt to have a fairly routine style so anyone reading can come to expect certain segments. Please excuse my incorrect grammar and occasional misspelling.
