Anybody who can't make money off iPads or TUAW should get out of the money-making business | iMore
But just because AOL can't make money off a niche blog, that doesn't mean the niche blog is dead: It just needs to evolve. We might be looking at a future where niche blogs stay far away from multi-million dollar corporations, and find different forms of money-making apart from blanket advertising. Ben Thompson wrote a fantastic piece this morning on blogging's bright future that follows those lines: No, it's not scale that is the problem, but rather reach. I am, of course, acutely aware that there is a tradeoff when it comes to the subscription business model: by making something scarce, and worth paying for, you are by definition limiting your number of readers. Stratechery, though, serves a niche, and niches are best served by making more from customers who really care than from milking pennies from everyone.

The most ridiculous quotes from NYMag’s feature on the future of Time Inc. | PandoDaily
That said, it hasn’t stopped Time from at least talking like a startup. The company’s CTO Colin Bodell, a former Amazon executive, sounds almost like a parody of a fail-fast entrepreneur, spouting off Silicon Valley koans to Sherman like, “I don’t care if it’s the janitor who comes up with the next big idea,” and “We know we have to iterate very, very fast.” [...] Time seems as confused on the editorial side of the company as it is on the business side. Ripp tells Sherman he brought in Pearlstine, a longtime staff reporter for the Wall Street Journal, because he understands the magazine’s “traditions.” And yet Ripp supports both native advertising (hell, who doesn’t these days) and, perhaps more troublingly, Forbes’ contributor model, which basically lets any hack publish under a Forbes byline no matter how compromised by special interests the writer is. [...] Time is talking the entrepreneurial talk, but not walking the walk.

How Jonah Peretti and BuzzFeed Got to $850 Million | Re/code
BuzzFeed +500 people. Even if you want to slight the company as nothing more than a Reddit repackager, someone has to do that repackaging. But if you’re only looking at BuzzFeed as a media company, then that $850 million might seem optimistic. Last year, people around the company pegged BuzzFeed’s 2013 revenue at $60 million, and now they’re supposedly on track for $120 million. Which means Dixon and his co-workers at Andreessen Horowitz are likely valuing Jonah Perreti’s company at something like 10x trailing 12-month sales. Investors value the New York Times at 1.2x sales. Time Inc. is at 0.77x. Time Warner, which mints money, is at 2x. + Are There Internet Dialects? http://youtu.be/SDPasRas5u0 Transporting Internet language, dialects, memes etc and ideas how to present stuff in an enlightening manner to mainstream. Still, thank god, there is a gap and lets hope there will always be a gap. ++ !! "most revenues come from creating ads for other brands" !! ++ http://bit.ly/1r64hlX
