[Moderator's Note: I managed to well and truly mangle this message when I
sent it through the first time, here's a version which should be easier to
read! Apologies Steve.]

John Batelle who used to edit Wired has a new venture from IDG. It's called
the Internet Industry Standard and you can get a free sample copy at
http://www.thestandard.net/.There's also a useful free weekly e-mail
newsletter to subscribe to.

Get a load of this quote from the pilot issue:

"Online advertising appears to be slowing down; after five straight
quarters of double-digit growth, sales were up a paltry 6% in the third
quarter, to $227 million."- Debra Aho Williamson and Jennifer Eno, page 8

The authors propose that advertisiing may have been a short-term funding
source for web sites but that commerce will now quickly replace it. What do
you think, team? Is the European web ad market dead before its first decent
black tie dinner or are the Americans just getting jumpy?
