Times are hard. So far they've looked harder for general news publishers. B2Bs appear to have been holding up relatively well. But...here's someone who thinks they are in as dire a situation as any other sector.
Here's an extract. It's from a US B2B specialst called Paul Conley:
1. The B2B publishing industry -- which is now dominated by giant print companies and smaller Web-only companies -- is about to collapse.
2. When the dust settles, B2B journalism will still be here -- but many of the companies that make up the industry will be gone.
3. The dominant business models of both the past and present will fail.
