I pay for the Wall Street Journal (though lately I’m regretting that). I don’t pay for the New York Times (though lately I’m regretting that). I work for the Bay Area News Group (though lately … I bet you thought I was going to repeat myself, now, didn’t you?).
I know what I’m willing to pay for. More and more, that willingness is being driven by what I see inside and outside organizations that set them up.
I hope they make the right call, for their sake and for mine.
