So Many VC Publications

from the publish-away dept

For an industry where not much is happening, there certainly are an awful lot of media companies focusing on it. Maybe that’s because they’re all just sitting on billions of dollars. Venture capitalists these days have a number of choices on where to go to read about what’s happening in their industry. The “grandfather” of the online services is VentureWire which finally began charging late last year. They still charge less than many of the older offline venture capital focused publications like VentureOne. Then, of course, there’s the former Silicon Alley Reporter – which has been repackaged as Venture Reporter. I received what I assume is a complementary copy in the mail the other day. They want to charge $17/issue of this slim magazine – which seems a bit excessive. Jason Calacanis who is not known for being modest or to ever shy away from a chance at hype has announced that he will “crush” VentureWire. Should be fun to watch. The one that seems to have the best info (by reputation – and it isn’t mentioned in this article), though, is A few years back I ended up with the domain Maybe I should fire it up and take on all these guys.
