Rise of the Paywall #4 – Future media directions


This morning I listened to the Radio NZ Insight programme, just after 8:00 a.m. It was a BBC Radio programme anchored by Peter Day on the issues facing the media, changing business models and the impact of the internet. How long the link will last I don’t know and at present it is not in podcast form.

It is a very interesting programme. As much as anything it describes how we have reached where we are today, whether it clearly postulates what the new world will be is doubtful.

Interestingly, the programme makes much use of the concept of ‘Free’, but I doubt if it is really used in the Chris Anderson sense.

A number of contributors are nostalgic for the past, but listen to the comments by Peter Bazalgette who appears to have some cogent points regarding possible futures.
