Hats off to Spin (yeah, I write for them sometimes) for their linking with MySpace to put their content online for free- the pay off was a 50% jump in subscriptions and renewals. Hardly a coincidence I think… Vice on the other hand is looking for subscribers to pay after offering their publication for free, which is kind of the opposite tact- it’ll be interesting to see how this pans out. Yet another publishing idea is selling stories through an online trader, which is what a service called Reporterist is doing now- they’re just starting out so stay tuned to see if this might be the way o’ the future for scribes and editors to connect.
