Former Chartbeat CEO Tony Haile wants to save the media industry by blocking ads - Recode
Past attempts to offer ad-blocking experiences — the ones that publishers have signed on for, anyway — have all failed, Haile said, because they added “friction” for the consumer, rather than taking it away.

“Many of the corpses in the graveyard I have to wade through on a daily basis, that have attempted this thing, have come at this by saying, ‘I’m going to create this amazing app,’” he said. “‘It’s going to be a beautiful app. And all you have to do to use it is change everything about how you discover content.’”

Above Avalon: Above Avalon Subscriptions Turn Three

Zetland’s members asked for an audio version — and now it’s more popular than their written stories » Nieman Journalism Lab
The response has been so overwhelming that since the fall, 60 percent of Zetland members have been listening to their journalism compared to 40 percent reading. Zetland has 10,000 members — up from 8,500 last year — with a price tagof 99 kroner (US $12.30) per month or 999 kroner (US $124.08) per year. They haven’t broken even yet, but they’re on track to do so next year and just brought on new investors, Korsgaard said.

Friday lunchtime lecture: The tenacity of building a business from FOI and open data – The ODI
When I started, most local authorities (of 348) refused to publish citing the risk of such data being used to commit crime. I proved, in a number of appeals to the Information Commissioner, that such fears were complete fallacies. To date, ICO has issued 15 decision notices in my favour, compelling local authorities to release vacancy data.

Alexa, can you get my kid to brush his teeth? (Oh, and Alexa? How exactly can I make money with you?) » Nieman Journalism Lab
Chompers emerges against an Alexa development environment that happens to ban all third-party ads(with some exceptions for music and flash briefing apps). It’s also an environment that seems to encourage advertisers and brands to directly create or commission skills themselves; a sort of Alexa-skill equivalent of the branded podcast. For further consideration of this, I highly recommend this Wired piece, “Amazon’s Alexa Wants You To Talk To Your Ads,” from December.

All of this amounts to a deeply uncertain context for audio publishers thinking about investing time and resources in creating a presence on the platform. Even if the smart speaker category feels really exciting in general, it’s incredibly hard for publishers to figure out a decent way to yield returns — a problem exacerbated by Amazon’s total and often opaque governance of the Alexa platform
