It's not a pearl bracelet. Those are Tibetan "mala" beads meant to emphasize the impermanence of all things...
someone trained you well.
"The problem with that approach is that it implicitly takes head on instantaneous data dissemination and distribution platforms like Google and Twitter. Whether this is a fight that is sustainable is very much open to debate"
I don't think there's much debate. The dinosaurs are just thrashing around in the tar.
Ahh, was wondering why LEE had pulled back to only up 20% on a daily basis and 700% YTD. Sanity has returned.
Murdoch really is behind the curve here - personally I do not pay for the kind of product he has to offer.
Given the internet a lot of his empire is rapidly becoming obsolete.
Murdoch and guys like him will never understand. They rose to power by being gatekeepers and simply cannot accept that the paradigm has changed. Of well. Such is life.
Murdoch thinks his paper is worth a premium? I just got a renewal notice for the print edition ( I have a woodstove and it burns great for kindling) : a 100% increase from last year from $200 to $400! They did the same for the online version- used to be $49 for the WJS & Barrons..
Adios Ruppert... I get more / better info free from the WEB (like this site)...with the $$ saved I guess I'll buy some ZH T-shirts...
Rupert is gonna put up a good fight and show his ass in the process. Note to Rupert - SELL now bro or get crushed but the free infomation train.
True. I have stopped watching television altogether - in fact, I don't think I have watched television in all of 2009 (except, perhaps - and ironically - on the web). I get my news, entertainment etc. etc. everything right here on the internet.
This plus buying MySpace and bankrolling the delusional mentals at Fox News will come back to deliver a swift kick to Murdoch's crotch. I can't believe he thinks pay walls will work, especially when his content is already bought and sold.
I have a paid subscription for FT and WSJ, but since recently spend much more time reading economic blogs like Zerohedge and watching stuff on Youtube than reading something I already paid for. Actually, most of the time I don't need any paid subscription to get the information I need as the proportion of exclusive materials even for the best newspapers is not as high to pay for it. Internet is a bitch.
Dude, you can get all WSJ articles for free by googling the headlines.
You're right, one less reason to renew the subscription.
So murdoch went the popularist route of providing worthless news to the masses, and they lapped it up and he built an empire out of it. All well and good when it's free, but who is going to pay for that crap? Most of which you can't trust to be objective anymore.
I will celebrate when NYTimes, WaPo and WSJ (among others) all bite the dust. Sayonara MSM.
+1 Gordon on the NYT... I will pop a cork to say a good bye to Krugman and his keynesian "solutions" editorials
They have been very carefull to make sure they bless everything the current administration does... theywould not want to miss out any any bailout funding that will be forthcoming to these dinosaurs
Lebedev again talks rubbish about how he is "socially repsonsibility minded". Ha ha. He's investigative journalism's saviour.
