Jeff Jarvis - "I'm not buying the reports I've been seeing lately..."
"BuzzFeed didn't make what might be overheated projections. Mashable never quite found its unique position in the market and then couldn't find a market for itself. Yahoo has been a fucking mess without a strategy for a decade. Medium is new and simply developing its strategy with new tools. Huffington Post has new owners who want more profit. Gawker is facing a $150 million legal bill! Al Jazeera is suffering from oil prices. The International Business Times has always been a mystery without a clear business. Salon has also never had a business plan."

Playboy to stop publishing images of nude women as it seeks greater audience
strategy = Wow, by removing nudity from the site (therefore going from NSFW to SFW), they went from 4MM to 16MM pageviews a month! But some people will look at that and say "they should have just started with being SFW"... but they never would have made a wave back in the 50s when they started if they hadn't been nude. The point is that there is no definite "right thing" to do. It's all about the world around you and doing something that is going to stand out in the current culture and climate.

After Three Months, Only 35 Subscriptions for Newsday's Web Site | The New York Observer
In the short time that the Dolans have owned Newsday, it's been a circus. When they were closing the deal to buy the paper in May 2008, they had their personal spokesman scream at an editor who assigned a reporter to visit the Dolans, seeking comment; there was a moment back in January of last year, when Newsday editor John Mancini walked out of the newsroom because of a dispute over how the paper was handling the Knicks; in the summer, the paper refused to run ads by Verizon, a rival; Tim Knight, the paper's publisher, and John Mancini, the editor, eventually both left.
