Welcome to a new Pando
J Thoendell stashed this in Tech
From today, the newest articles on Pando will be available to members first. Membership costs just $10 a month (or $100 a year, if you pay upfront) and members also get unlimited access to our entire video archive and to our real world events, in person and via livestream. We’ll be rolling out a whole bunch more member features over the coming weeks.
Don’t want to pay to read Pando? That’s ok. Members have the power to “unlock” articles to share with the rest of the world via social media and email. Unlocked links remain open for 48 hours. if there’s something you want to read but find it locked, just hit up a member and ask them to unlock it for you. Or keep an eye on Pando’s Twitter feed -- we’ll publish regular links to unlocked articles.
To coincide with our new membership model, we’ve spent months redesigning Pando from the ground up, including moving away from Wordpress VIP to our own in-house CMS. For your security, all pages are now served via https by default. We’ve also moved to a daily publishing model -- with the bulk of the day’s stories published each morning at 9am pacific. To make things even more efficient, members will receive an email every morning containing summaries of all the top stories.
