4 thoughts on “New York Times Wants To Be More Digital”

  1. First item on the list would be to make the site more interactive.
    Allow people to discuss, rate, recommend articles and discuss topics.

    Why not even allow users to submit reviews and editorials with quality reviews and editorials being highlighted by an online editor.

  2. A newspaper has to differentiate itself with editorial content and news relevant to a critical mass of consumers. NYTimes is one of the few newspapers doing this (apart from WPO and WSJ). It cannot be compared with other newspapers which are usually poor in editorial content/news or both.

    Given the quality of content compared to competitors, I don’t mind paying…

    I may be a minority, but I think that an ad-supported free NYTimes site where you have to wade through and get distracted by ads is a huge turnoff.

  3. Their joint venture/investment in thestreet.com would have worked out just fine if they had some patience. Instead they bought high and sold low.
