We Are a Fickle Bunch

We always knew that America had a collective short term memory span of 3-6 months max. Well it is now born out with our relationship with the news media. On 9/11 and thereafter, we came to love a cherish our media and had no complaint as to how they fed us our daily dose of news. We are now back to our old cynical selves looking down our noses at the likes of MSNBC, 20/20, NPR, etc. From the Washington Times.

Study says begrudging media is back on track -- The Washington Times The honeymoon is over. America is once again annoyed with its media, according to a new Pew Research Center survey released yesterday.

I guess we just love to complain.

Surfers Will Pay

It's nice to see that there is enough value on the web today that people will pay for it. That is exactly why is happening according to a study done by the Online Publishers Association and reported in eMarketer. This is good news. What is paid for is perceived to have higher value for the user. Why else would they pay?

Business content, by far, is the highest paid category in this study. Perhaps because those subscribers are expensing the cost to their employer as part of their job requirement.


According to a study released by the Online Publishers Association, conducted by comScore Networks, US consumers spent $675 million on online content in 2001. In fact, spending grew by at least $20 million each fiscal quarter between Q1 2001 and Q1 2002.

Perhaps there is some hope, after all, for a subscription based model of survival. The Wall Street Journal has succeeded on line. It's nice to see other models work as well.
