The New York Times Is Now Supported by Readers, Not Advertisers -- Daily Intel
Eric Barker stashed this in Tech
exciting...this may get me to reconsider paying for NYT eventually
Jared, what would get you to pay, ultimately?
having so much money that the price would not matter...otherwise I think the only content I pay for still is books and netflix.
$5 is probably close. I am not sure how the future of journalism looks.
It looks a lot like the Internet. Smells like it, too. :)
which means free!
Or Freemium like LinkedIn, Flickr, WordPress, Tumblr, and Github.
Facebook and Twitter aren't free; you are the product.
Am I not part of the product for NYT as they track my articles?
Not really. The targeted advertising brings in next to nothing.
If that were more lucrative they'd tear down the paywall and scale the readership.
