Business is Business
Beginning Monday, July 24th, ALL stories from The Business Review print edition will be available online to print-edition subscribers ONLY.We've accused the Business Review of looking like the chamber of commerce newsletter; their reporting generally lacks a critical eye toward its subjects, focusing instead on rah-rah pieces that avoid tough questions. That's what makes this bad news for economic development people. The Tech Valley and Nano crowd will be losing a valuable tool that they've exploited to tell their story to a world of online readers.
Albany Eye is all about finding solutions, not pointing out problems, so here's what I'd suggest: Maybe a deep pocketed company or organization could sponsor of the Business Review's online edition, keeping it free and open for everyone out here in the web-o-sphere. Someone like the chamber of commerce, perhaps?
