WSJ Top Stories: Less Tech than ’05 December 28, 2006Posted by David Card in Media.
Always interesting pulse-taking exercise: the Journal’s top-read stories of the year. Last year, it was a heavy dose of tech news, with a big dollop of Google. In 2006, by my count, it’s only four — or five, depending on whether you count biometrics as “tech” — out of 15, though the sequel to Sergey’s and Larry’s jet story leads the list. A lot of politics and housing, too, and several media stories. So it seems it’s not so much about tech investment bubbling in 2006. Or is the Journal’s online audience just becoming a little more mainstream?
