Michael Kinsley On The Soul Of Slate

from the still-going dept

Earlier this week, Michael Kinsley announce that he was leaving as editor of Slate after six years heading up Microsoft’s online magazine. News.com has an interview with him about why he left (that itch to move on, plus dealing with Parkinsons disease), and what he thinks is happening in the online content world. He still sticks by his belief in having people pay for online content, but says the payment mechanism needs to get easier.
