N.Y. Times Launches DealBook Blog

For ages now one of my favorite email newsletters has been the N.Y. Times’ morning DealBook letter. It is a great multi-outlet summary of dealmaking news across private equity, venture capital, and M&A. The only trouble was that it was only in email, didn’t have permanent story links, and was only once a day.

No longer. As of this morning, DealBook is “blogified” and on the web at http://dealbook.blogs.nytimes.com/. It allows comments, will be (apparently) updated continuously, and has persistent links.

Great stuff. Congrats to editor Andrew Ross Sorkin.

    I love DealBook. I look forward to receiving it every day. Now that it’s an actual stand alone sight, I will add it to my Mozilla tabs on start up.
    Excellent stuff.

    After I made the switch to an rss reader, every non-syndicated source kind of fell by the wayside. I’m glad to have this one back. Thanks for the link.
    Now all I’m missing is a feed for newly published academic papers (SSRN, EconLit, etc). Do you know of any?

  3. The fast answer is No. While there are per-author feeds for SSRN, I don’t know of a good wide feed for SSRN/Econlit. Others can correct me, but I don’t know of a economic equivalent of the excellent Hubmed.
    Too bad. I may eventually be forced to write it myself.
