A Look at Content

from the does-it-matter-any-more? dept

Salon (apparently ignoring the fact that they themselves are a content site) takes a look at the fates of three content sites. They kick Word.com which is already down for the count. Then they make fun of Inside.com for actually thinking they could make money on the subscriptoin model (they more or less admitted this week that they can’t), and then trash Slate for pretending to be profitable when everyone knows they’re just sucking money from Microsoft. Of course, the fourth case study should be themselves, but I guess that hits a little too close to home.
