Paid news content presentation from Aspen

By Steve Outing

My time to speak at the Aspen Institute’s FOCAS conference, running through Wednesday, got squished, so I had to skip slides and make other adjustments (ugh). The talk was on “Paying for Digital News: The Future or Folly.”

A bunch of folks asked that I posted the presentation slides, so here they are in PDF form:

If you want a good overview about different models, look at journalist Steve Outing’s presentation about the topic. […]

Uutisten tuottajat -uudet ja vanhat järjestelmät- voivat kokeilla uusia malleja. (Hyvä katsaus erilaisiin liiketoimintamalleihin journalisti Steve Outingin esityksessä aiheesta.) […]
