Hi multimediaites —
One of the major discussions going on within Web journalism circles (and journalism circles overall) is how news organizations can make money off of their Web operations. There are many innovative experiments going on and there are lots of organizations also trying to figure out ways to apply the newspaper subscriber model to the Web. This week, the New York Times announced its plans to “charge for frequent access to its web site.”
The plan is not scheduled to start until next year and NYT officials took part in an online discussion today on the proposal. Please read the article and the discussion and weigh in with your comments in the comments section before next class.
