Industry Standard prediction update

Back in October, while moderating a panel at’s “Future of Business Media” conference in New York, I asked IDG CEO Bob Carrigan about the rumors that The Industry Standard would be relaunching online as a dejazine (although, I feel 100% sure I didn’t use that term). Bob indicated that it would be launching last December as a “very innovative social media platform” that aggregates input from the community in a prediction market thing.”

While the site didn’t relaunch publicly last December, it has now.
