Even More on Free

Following up again on my recent obsession with online payment models (or the lack thereof), the Columbia Journalism Review has several articles in its most recent issue about this very theme. It includes David Simon, who writes a piece with the anti-Reagan-to-Gorbachev headline of "Build the Wall." He addresses directly the heads of the New York Times and the Washington Post. ("If you do not find a way to make people pay for your product, then you are—if you choose to remain in this line of work—delusional.")

Then there's Michael Shapiro making "the case for a free/paid hybrid."

Conversation starters, anyway...
