Standard Media International Inc., publisher of the Internet economy magazine Industry Standard, said weaker ad sales have led it to discontinue Grok, a spinoff publication, after only five months. The final issue of the magazine, officially named Industry Standard Grok, will be published in February and feature articles about online investing and banking. Those special reports will continue in the pages of Industry Standard.

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.

Powerful Media Inc., New York-based operator of the online journalistic venture Inside.com, will launch a print magazine in conjunction with the Industry Standard, a magazine that covers the Internet industry. The print product was expected, but the partnership with a highly successful trade magazine may add credibility to the new publication, which will cover the news and entertainment media as they adapt to new technologies.
