The end of paidContent
Posted on 14-Nov-2013 13:05 by Bill Bennett. | Tags Filed under: News.


paidContentIt may not be at the top of everyone’s reading lists, but journalists, editors and publishers found the site a must-read.

Now sadly, paidContent has closed.

From today the remaining journalists and their coverage is wrapped into GigaOm.

You could view the closure as a case of job done. After all, many newspaper sites and other online media properties have moved to paid subscriptions. Soon most big publishing companies will charge for content. Although they are having mixed success.

PaidContent was influential with the more advanced people in the media industry. At first it specialised in news. More recently it has been more about analysis and, often, thoughtful commentary.

Now with the brand off the radar Tom Krazit promises:

“More coverage of emerging technology in the media world: social media, startups, new publishing platforms like Medium, ereaders and web video devices.”

Which means it’ll still be essential reading for some of us.
