FAIR PRICING FOR DIGITAL CONTENT
Message from Rebekah Brooks

Those of you that subscribe to The Times and The Sunday Times or have registered on Times Online will receive a communication starting from this week inviting you to register for an exclusive preview of the new digital proposition. This shows that we are getting closer to the launch of the titles’ new digital sites.

I have made no secret of our intention to start charging for quality journalism online. As you may have seen speculation in the media about our plans, I wanted to take this opportunity to let you know why we believe this is such an important development.

We are committed to producing quality journalism that is written by professionals with a profound understanding of their subject and a commitment to provide well-informed coverage of the issues. Each of our titles, in its own way, has pioneered quality, professional journalism and we are unashamed to say we believe it has value.

In contrast, the industry is making the mistake of chasing millions of unique users by giving the audience more and more content for free. An obsession with traffic just doesn’t pay.
Great journalism needs investment and we are committed to supporting the fantastic work that you are all producing and delivering to our audiences. It is the quality of the journalism that you create, and the ways in which we produce and distribute it, that will continue to set our titles apart from the competition.

And to be clear, when we talk about charging for our content online, we are talking about charging a fair price. Price alone will not be a barrier to take up. Of course, we expect to see the numbers of unique users of our sites come down dramatically. But the people who register to our new digital products will be customers who have made a positive decision to pay a fair price for journalism that they value, and they will be those who are more committed to and engaged with our titles.

This is an exciting development for our company especially as we will be among the first in the world to take this step. There are many who declare we have set ourselves an impossible task. But our company loves nothing more than challenging the status quo.

Shortly I will update you on our plans in more detail. But, in the meantime, I believe that with the combined force of your talent, commitment and hard work, we will, in the months and years to come, define a new future in the way we create, deliver and profit from our journalism.

Τα 15 sites που άλλαξαν το internet

There are millions of websites out there. Many of them are unique, either in small ways or in large ones. But the individual impact of any particular site on the overall Internet is generally negligible, if there’s any impact at all.

Ολα τα κείμενα εδώ: 15 Noteworthy Websites That Changed the Internet

Not so with the fifteen sites here. These sites changed the Internet, mostly for good, in substantial ways. Included here is everything from Geocities (which could probably be blamed entirely, either directly or indirectly, for every ugly web design “trend” that’s ever been) to Wikipedia (which has made information almost universally accessible) to Google (which has changed or influenced virtually everything online).

1. Wikipedia

Changed the way we find information.

2. Amazon.com

3. Hotmail

4. Facebook

5. Project Gutenberg

6. Twitter

7. Pandora

10. Craigslist

11. The Drudge Report

Changed the stature of online news.

12. GeoCities

geocities

Made the web more accessible.

13. Digg

Changed the way we find and share news.

14. LiveJournal

15. Google

Changed everything.

Οι τηλεαστέρες στο διαδίκτυο




Στην αρχή αρχή ήλθε αυτό:
ΤVXS.gr (BETA) – TV Χωρίς Σύνορα
Ακολούθησε αυτό: Zougla online
Μετά αυτό: Mediasoup
Κι έπειτα άρχισαν να σκάνε μύτη σαν μανιτάρια αυτό: PROTAGON
αυτό: newsit.gr
και χθες προχθές κι αυτό: Ellispoint.gr

Τι κοινό έχουν όλα αυτά;
Πρώτον, ανθρώπους που αναδείχθηκαν μέσα από την τηλεόραση. Τηλεαστέρες. Τηλεδημοσιογράφους και (κάποιοι εξ αυτών) Τηλεεισαγγελείς.
Πρωταγωνιστές στην πιο άθλια περίοδο της ελληνικής τηλεόρασης. Με εξαίρεση ίσως τον Κούλογλου και τον Θεοδωράκη αν και για αυτούς κάποιοι διατηρούν και ενστάσεις και επιφυλάξεις.
Δεύτερον, κάνουν ακριβώς το ίδιο πράγμα. Βάζουν παλιό (ξινό) κρασί σε νέα, ψηφιακά βαρέλια. Παλιές ιδέες, παλιοί τρόποι σκέψης, παλιά ονόματα, παλιές πένες, παλιά μυαλά, αμπαλαρισμένα με νέο περιτύλιγμα.
Τρίτον, λειτουργούν με καθεστώς γαλέρας. Με εθελοντές, απλήρωτους ή χαμηλοαμειβόμενους νέους και με κάποια ονόματα που παίρνουν ένα καλό χαρτζιλικάκι για να γράφουν στον ελεύθερο χρόνο τους κανένα άρθρο.
Τέταρτον, με αδιαφάνεια στο ποιοι πραγματικά είναι πίσω από τα site, ποιοί τα χρηματοδοτούν, τι ρόλο βαράνε. Μπορεί να μην υπάρχει τίποτα ύποπτο και θέλω να πιστεύω οτι δεν υπάρχει, όμως αυτό δεν προκύπτει από ΠΟΥΘΕΝΑ! Τουλάχιστον δεν είναι ορατό.
Πέμπτον, με διαφημίσεις από την πρώτη σχεδόν ημέρα, άντε εβδομάδα, λειτουργίας τους. Πόθεν; Ποιός τους μέτρησε; Ποιός τις δίνει; ΠΟΣΟ τις δίνει;
Εκτον, με άγνωστη την κίνησή τους. Κάποιοι μιλάνε για ποσοστά …νικοτίνης στην κίνησή τους, παρά τα εργαλειάκια που χρησιμοποιούν για να τους δίνουν «ράνκιν». Πάντως κι αυτά τα στατιστικά είναι αδιαφανή ή αόρατα.
Εβδομο (και για μένα ίσως το ΠΙΟ σημαντικό) κανένας από τους παραπάνω δεν έχει καμιά προσωπική σχέση (άρα και γνώση) για το διαδίκτυο. Με το ζόρι ξέρουν να στέλνουν e-mail!

Σε μια εποχή που τα παραδοσιακά ΜΜΕ όλα αυτά τα κοινά στοιχεία το μόνο που δείχνουν είναι μια βαθιά παθογένεια που πάει να περάσει και στα Νέα Μέσα. Τι είχε Γιάννη; Τι είχα πάντα! (Καρκίνο!!!)
Οι τηλεαστέρες των χρεοκοπημένων ΜΜΕ είτε ψάχνουν να εξαργυρώσουν τη φήμη τους στο διαδίκτυο είτε αναζητούν σανίδα σωτηρίας σε αυτό ως νέες Χάφινγκτον.
Το κάνουν άγαρμπα.
Το κάνουν με αμετροέπεια.
Το κάνουν χωρίς γνώση. Τσαλαβουτώντας και πλατσουρίζοντας στα ρηχά.
Το κάνουν ερήμην των χρηστών.
Ευτυχώς η ζημιά που μπορούν να κάνουν στα Νέα Μέσα είναι μικρότερη από αυτή που έκαναν τόσα χρόνια στο τηλεοπτικό κοινό και στις τηλεοράσεις που δούλεψαν.

Οι εξαιρέσεις, διότι υπάρχουν και τέτοιες, απλώς επιβεβαιώνουν τον κανόνα!

Και θα προσθέσω κι ένα ακόμη κοινό γνώρισμα όλων των παραπάνω που μου το είπαν τρεις διαφορετικοί άνθρωποι προ ολίγου: είναι ΟΛΟΙ τους γέροι!
(Και για να μην παρεξηγηθώ: γέροι στα μυαλά, όχι στα χρόνια!!!!!!!!!)

Εδώ τα φρέσκα, τα νεανικά μυαλά, για να καταλάβετε τι ακριβώς εννοώ>sτις pαλιές aγάπες*


Οι τηλεαστέρες στο διαδίκτυο




Στην αρχή αρχή ήλθε αυτό:
ΤVXS.gr (BETA) – TV Χωρίς Σύνορα
Ακολούθησε αυτό: Zougla online
Μετά αυτό: Mediasoup
Κι έπειτα άρχισαν να σκάνε μύτη σαν μανιτάρια αυτό: PROTAGON
αυτό: newsit.gr
και χθες προχθές κι αυτό: Ellispoint.gr

Τι κοινό έχουν όλα αυτά;
Πρώτον, ανθρώπους που αναδείχθηκαν μέσα από την τηλεόραση. Τηλεαστέρες. Τηλεδημοσιογράφους και (κάποιοι εξ αυτών) Τηλεεισαγγελείς.
Πρωταγωνιστές στην πιο άθλια περίοδο της ελληνικής τηλεόρασης. Με εξαίρεση ίσως τον Κούλογλου και τον Θεοδωράκη αν και για αυτούς κάποιοι διατηρούν και ενστάσεις και επιφυλάξεις.
Δεύτερον, κάνουν ακριβώς το ίδιο πράγμα. Βάζουν παλιό (ξινό) κρασί σε νέα, ψηφιακά βαρέλια. Παλιές ιδέες, παλιοί τρόποι σκέψης, παλιά ονόματα, παλιές πένες, παλιά μυαλά, αμπαλαρισμένα με νέο περιτύλιγμα.
Τρίτον, λειτουργούν με καθεστώς γαλέρας. Με εθελοντές, απλήρωτους ή χαμηλοαμειβόμενους νέους και με κάποια ονόματα που παίρνουν ένα καλό χαρτζιλικάκι για να γράφουν στον ελεύθερο χρόνο τους κανένα άρθρο.
Τέταρτον, με αδιαφάνεια στο ποιοι πραγματικά είναι πίσω από τα site, ποιοί τα χρηματοδοτούν, τι ρόλο βαράνε. Μπορεί να μην υπάρχει τίποτα ύποπτο και θέλω να πιστεύω οτι δεν υπάρχει, όμως αυτό δεν προκύπτει από ΠΟΥΘΕΝΑ! Τουλάχιστον δεν είναι ορατό.
Πέμπτον, με διαφημίσεις από την πρώτη σχεδόν ημέρα, άντε εβδομάδα, λειτουργίας τους. Πόθεν; Ποιός τους μέτρησε; Ποιός τις δίνει; ΠΟΣΟ τις δίνει;
Εκτον, με άγνωστη την κίνησή τους. Κάποιοι μιλάνε για ποσοστά …νικοτίνης στην κίνησή τους, παρά τα εργαλειάκια που χρησιμοποιούν για να τους δίνουν «ράνκιν». Πάντως κι αυτά τα στατιστικά είναι αδιαφανή ή αόρατα.
Εβδομο (και για μένα ίσως το ΠΙΟ σημαντικό) κανένας από τους παραπάνω δεν έχει καμιά προσωπική σχέση (άρα και γνώση) για το διαδίκτυο. Με το ζόρι ξέρουν να στέλνουν e-mail!

Σε μια εποχή που τα παραδοσιακά ΜΜΕ όλα αυτά τα κοινά στοιχεία το μόνο που δείχνουν είναι μια βαθιά παθογένεια που πάει να περάσει και στα Νέα Μέσα. Τι είχε Γιάννη; Τι είχα πάντα! (Καρκίνο!!!)
Οι τηλεαστέρες των χρεοκοπημένων ΜΜΕ είτε ψάχνουν να εξαργυρώσουν τη φήμη τους στο διαδίκτυο είτε αναζητούν σανίδα σωτηρίας σε αυτό ως νέες Χάφινγκτον.
Το κάνουν άγαρμπα.
Το κάνουν με αμετροέπεια.
Το κάνουν χωρίς γνώση. Τσαλαβουτώντας και πλατσουρίζοντας στα ρηχά.
Το κάνουν ερήμην των χρηστών.
Ευτυχώς η ζημιά που μπορούν να κάνουν στα Νέα Μέσα είναι μικρότερη από αυτή που έκαναν τόσα χρόνια στο τηλεοπτικό κοινό και στις τηλεοράσεις που δούλεψαν.
