A loyal reader, Jan, sent along a link that has a lot of good information about how people feel about the Internet and newspapers.
People love the Internet, but they are not willing to pay for much. That does not bode well for those who believe that a sustainable and lucrative model for online news gathering is anywhere on the horizon.
Maybe years down the road, but people want their information and they want it for free. I have a Twitter account, a Facebook account and use the Internet daily. But when someone asks me for dough, I say no. I hate tip jars, as well.
Also notice if you want the full report you'll have to pay for it. I'm not.
