Nice article.

It outlines several business models for online "journalism"/content delivery/entertainment sites. With implications for quality, value of content, and ability to make a living as a professional (vs vast armies of unpaid bloggers.)

some obvious parallels, metaphors, and implications foe photography.

This is the bit that worried me!!



“Everywhere I go the whole notion of enabling marketers to create content on a news platform is well received,” Lewis Dvorkin says. “It’s the way the world is moving.”

Not long ago, such an idea would have been considered heretical, and in many newsrooms, it still is. But clearly, attitudes are shifting.
