Mecklermedia Acquires Internet Industry Newsletters, Web Sites

Mecklermedia Corp. Tuesday acquired ISP-Lists, which publishes a variety of newsletters and Web sites dealing on the Internet provider industry.

The business is a collection of 22 e-mail discussion lists, 15 e-mail newsletters and 25 ISP-specific Web sites. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. ISP-Lists will become part of the Internet.com network.

"ISP-Lists is the online hub of the Internet service provider community," said Alan M. Meckler, chairman and chief executive officer of Mecklermedia.

"Many people are talking about online 'communities' today. ISP-Lists is the best execution of the 'community' concept that we've seen in the business-to-business arena."

Christopher M. Knight, ISP-Lists founder, will join Internet.com's staff and oversee the unit's development.
