I think the audience is now the primary customer. That doesn’t mean that advertisers (or, more likely in my view, sponsors) aren’t going to see that audience and want to be associated with the audience/content offered. And there are models (e.g. donation-based like my local Brattleboro free newspaper “The Commons”) that will provide some income from readers; just not as much, in general, as publishers used to get. I think we’ll see some of these new models succeed.

Any media whose plan is to sell information to readers, they aren’t going to be around much longer.

It certainly seems you completely missed the point of my post.

I think of my chart as reflecting the reality of the business model that media is going to have to adopt if it wants to survive. How this model gets monetized is, of course, the $64,000 question, and your Techdirt post nicely analyzes potential problems raised by the New York Times’ approach.

I’d have labeled the chart “What it really is” and “What they are pretending it is”

I like your decision to illustrate it since the concept is, at its core, *so damn simple* and yet so many people refuse to see it.
