NAA posts Digital Feds discussion on paid vs. free

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.  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?

  1. Semirelated:

    A couple variations of this have been on Romenesko Notes over the last couple of days.

    Would I be completely off base to say that the people who are complaining about Google and Yahoo news don’t get the benefits of the two sites? Don’t they bring eyes to newspaper sites that might not otherwise get them?
