Wired Magazine: Barometer of Industry Health?: "I started to leaf through the latest Wired magazine last night when it suddenly struck me it was a nice, hefty, advertising-packed 296 pages. This took me back to the height of the dot-com boom when magazines such as Wired, Business 2.0 (which went bi-weekly), Fast Company and the Industry Standard regularly published heavy, back-busting issues. " —Mark Evans

Which in turn took me back to 2000, when Vignette ran four (4) full-page ads in the same issue of Wired, each with its own androgynous model and the vague yet pedantic tagline, "E-business ideas that turn on your brain."
