ABSTRACT
The article highlights the different uses of the term "red herring." In the 1920s, American investment bankers began calling preliminary investment prospectuses red herrings as a warning to investors that the documents were not complete or final. In the spirit of full disclosure, the founders of the publication felt "Red Herring" to be an appropriate name for a magazine dedicated to providing a first look at the companies and trends shaping the business of technology.
