A Big Move

In 2003, Inc. moved offices from Boston to New York City, bringing Inc.com with it. Internet download speeds continued to improve, and so did users' abilities to download content. For example, according to some estimates, 2.6 billion music files were downloaded illegally every month. As magazine revenues began to climb again, niche publications continued to be hit hard. By fall, ad sales rates at Kiplinger's Personal Finance, were down 13.3 over 2002; at Fast Company they were down 29.6 percent.
