March 2002: "Yesterday the Industry Standard announced that it is ceasing publication. The magazine's Web site said the company will "maintain its online editorial coverage while it seeks a buyer," but only a skeleton crew of six to 20 employees will remain. The parent company, Standard Media International, is expected to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection shortly." http://www.thestandard.com/article/0,1902,28747,00.html 8/17/2001
