Remember the paid vs. free debate? My blog wasn’t the only place at the time I was writing about it.
There was also a very lively discussion going on in the Digital Media Federation’s e-mail discussion list.
The NAA has made the entire thread available to members (You need an NAA member ID to access). It’s well worth the time to read if you missed the original debate. Several people made excellent points. (Via Beth Lawton).
(In case the disclosure is needed, I’m on the DMF’s board.)
UPDATE: Do you need more proof that pay for content won’t work.Â CNN is giving up on its SECOND try at the model.
I still can’t believe that there are people who argue in favor of paid content. It just boggles the mind, doesn’t it?
