NY Times Apparently Planning To Commit Suicide Online With Paywall

Mike Masnick, TechDirt, Jan 18, 2010
Commentary by Stephen Downes

If the NY Times wants a successful paywall, they should charge only for access in the first 24 hours. After that, they could make the comment free. That way, they have the best of both worlds - they collect from high-paying business customers who want their original reporting right away, while at the same time they share their content with the rest of the world, maintain advertising revenue, and remind people on a regular basis of how good their coverage is. Sadly, this model (in yet another bid for immortality, I propose we call it the 'Downes' model) is not under consideration. Hello? NY Times? Anyone?
