Digitrends ceases publishing

SUMMARY: No summary available.
It seems to be official - Digitrends has ceased publishing ... at least for now.

I've been respectfully competing with Andy Batkin, Digitrends' founder, since way back in 1994, when he launched the world's first newsletter on Internet marketing, and I launched the second 60 days later for my former-employer Phillips Publishing. (Noteably both were print publications!)

When I decided to launch MarketingSherpa almost two years ago, I knew it would be tough because folks like ClickZ and Digitrends dominated the Internet marketing news landscape already. And we basically had no money. It was wing and a prayer, sheer persistance, and by the skin of our teeth for a long time.

Now we're up for a Tenagra Award for best pub this year, while Digitrends is apparently dead and ClickZ is melting, melting.

Maybe I should feel happy, but it's the opposite. I'm bummed out. There's nothing good about seeing competitors you respect losing it. Nothing.
