NY Times and Business ModelsI understand that the NY Times is now making reading its editorial pages a subscription service.
It is SO interesting to see the Internet shake up business models. This will have no direct effect on me, though I once liked reading Krugman. My concern is it will cut down a lot of the internet discussions of the columns now behind the wall.
We shall see. I would like to think the effect would be that many fewer people will pay attention to these columnists, and this will hurt the Times. Then they will have to think about what to do.
Competition is rather neat and clean.
