Afternoon Links: GoodBye Business 2.0 Edition

Written by

I received news that I'll be saving around $10-12 a year and I'm mad about it. It looks like Time Warner is closing down the Business 2.0 magazine. It was my favorite of three magazine that I subscribe to - the other two being Men's Health and Money. Perhaps I'll have to start reading Tech Crunch instead. Let me know if you have any suggestions. In the meantime here are a couple of articles that I really liked recently.

  • Dating Down - My wife makes more than me, so this article from My Open Wallet hit home. Before we dated she ended up buying a cheaper car than what she wanted simply because she didn't want intimidate men. I don't get it, but maybe that's because I'm a gold digger ;-).
  • Mint Review - Birds and Bills really has a nice comprehensive review of Mint.com. I was going to write a review (and I still might), but at this point, this encompasses just about every opinion I had when testing the beta.
  • Paperless Finance - We watched An Inconvenient Truth the other night and the environment is at the front of my mind. I can do better with my paperless finance and need to devote an hour or two to refining a system that works for me.

    OMG No!!!

    Where did you hear this? This is my favorite magazine by far. When do they actually stop?

    This Associated Press article is one place.

    Why not start a magazine?

  4. Lazy Man says:

    I have one. Just use the print button :-).

    On a more serious note, I don’t really have the start-up capital or industry knowledge. While I can have a big ego at times, I’m not sure I’m smarter than the collective wisdom at TimeWarner. If they can’t monetize the readership, I probably can’t.

    Business 2.0 had some really great articles. Of course, if it wasn’t for the article on buying and selling domain names, I wouldn’t have 20 domains that I have no idea what to do with…

  6. My husband is a huge fan of Fast Company – says both the features and columns are great.

    It’s always strange when a magazine (or a show, or a product, etc.) that you really like gets discontinued. It’s hard for you to imagine why everyone else doesn’t like it. I can tell you with Business 2.0, though, that it was always fairly interesting, but like with Money I don’t bother to subscribe anymore because it seems you can get 99% of the content on CNNMoney. Maybe they will just discontinue the print version and make it an online venture, which would seem appropriate anyway.

    Men’s Health is good too, except it’s sometimes tough to find the articles buried in the advertising.
