Morning Reading 8 28 09Posted: August 28, 2009
- Fantastic article from Business Week on how one entrepeneur, Barry Diller, is bound and determined to monetize content online (h/t Jim Baker). Diller is quoted, “The era of a free Internet was created by technology people who wouldn’t know content if they tripped over it…[t]hey had no idea how to monetize what people were watching.”
- From the Boston Phoenix, a new hyperlocal approach is how the Providence Journal plans to save itself.
- Yesterday, on the six-month anniversary of the Rocky Mountain News closing its print operations, Save the News hosted a chat with some of its former editors. I participated a little, but, for the most part, the editors turned “Save the News” into “Save the Newspaper.” You can read the full transcript of the chat here.
