No this is not about being liberal or conservative.
This is about how little MSM covers business technology as against consumer oriented technology.
Every one of the enterprise vendors I list above has at least $ 250 million in annual revenue and does business with the largest companies in the world. Maybe NY Times journalists ought to step away from their Macs and Google searches and go visit some of the CIOs at the numerous headquarters in Manhattan.
And the NY Times does much better than other MSM when it comes to enterprise coverage. In fairness, if tech.memeorandum is any indication, blog world is also headed that way. CIOs continue to have the last laugh, though. By many estimates, enterprise technology budgets, boring as they might be to MSM, are 10X consumer spending on technology.
Update: CNNMoney.com has a column on "unhip" tech stocks. So I bet it is companies like Manugistics or AnswerThink, once high-flying tech companies valued at much lower now. No, their definition of "unhip" is Dell, Cisco, Microsoft. A search of the Money on-line site shows 2 hits for Manugistics and 0 for AnswerThink. The last article on BMC was in 2000. Forget "unhip" - they are invisible to CNNMoney.com.
