This is my dumping ground for quotes and other stuff relating to the wonderful world of digital & communications.
The Newspaper Association of America has long claimed there are 2.3 readers for every print edition circulated…
So, if it’s always been possible on any given day to pick up the local paper somewhere for free, why did people ever pay? Not because they had to, but because it was easier to get it placed on their doorstep every morning (convenience), because they felt if they were going to read it every day they ought to pay (duty), or because they wanted to support the institution and people that produced it (appreciation).
Those are the same three reasons someone might subscribe to the The New York Times’ digital content.
