New wave mags assume revived tech biz boom

by Doug Millison for SiliconValleyWatcher.com

Another sign that a new tech business boom is underway: top-tier press coverage of venerable magazines re-tooling to catch the new wave.

MIT Technology Review will become bigger (moving from 56 to 72 pages per month, and from 10 to 12 issues a year) and "more serious," reports the New York Times in today's puff piece. Designer Roger Black is reworking the magazine's look-and-feel.

The Times notes that the magazine will face renewed competition from another '90s tech boom holdover, Red Herring, and a new challenger, Tech Confidential, from the publishers of The Daily Deal.
