The Industry Standard, a magazine that celebrated and symbolized the technology boom, closed Thursday. Barely 3 years old, the Standard rose rapidly with the "new economy" before falling victim to the old. When tech stocks crested in the spring of 2000, the Standard boasted 360 pages. Its last issue this week had 90. A frantic search for a deep-pocketed buyer, and then $10 million in financing, proved unavailing.

The Industry Standard, the self-proclaimed weekly "newsmagazine of the Internet economy," provided another sign of the sobering times by laying off 69 employees, or 16% of its work force. The San Francisco-based magazine now has laid off 22% of its staff since Jan. 1 as its holding company, Standard International Media, unravels an ambitious expansion undertaken during last year's heady times.

The company behind the Industry Standard, a fast-growing technology magazine, laid off 7% of its staff in the latest sign of the sobering times gripping the once-exuberant "dot-com" sector. Standard Media International trimmed 36 workers from its payroll in anticipation of an advertising slowdown this year, company spokeswoman Alissa Neil said. The job cuts were concentrated in the San Francisco-based company's marketing, Internet production and conference marketing divisions.

"We are moving out of the period of low-hanging fruit."

When Cliff Gerrish joined upstart Bay Area investment bank W.R. Hambrecht & Co. as head of Web development, excitement was in the air. Every Friday night in downtown San Francisco, dot-com revelers sipped drinks and smoked Cuban cigars on the roof of the now-defunct Industry Standard magazine. "They were partying like it was 1999, and it was," he said. Hambrecht envisioned using online auctions to revolutionize the way new stock offerings were distributed.
