I will commit £23.32 per month to a citizen-run news service for Leeds... – Matt Edgar
Interesting... trying to get a regular, quality, local, online news-site funded. Not by individual readers paying, or by one deep-pocketed entity paying, but something in between. (via gilest)

The Online Photographer: The World's Best Photography Magazine Tries a Different Revenue Model
For the bit about "vampire" publications, which rely on the journalism of others. eg, 'The Week'. I reckon, when/if increasing numbers of traditional publishers charge money, there will be more of these vampires -- well curated, re-written content, without original journalism, on a tiny budget.

LRB · John Lanchester · Let Us Pay
On the future of the newspaper industry. Many good nuggets, including: "New York Times, if it stopped printing a physical edition of the paper, could afford to give every subscriber a free Kindle. Not the bog-standard Kindle, but the one with free global data access. And not just one Kindle, but four Kindles. And not just once, but every year."
