The New York Times has finally released some information about their upcoming pay-ramp which begins March 28th. I’m excited to see what happens but another part of me feels like there is a missed opportunity to explore new ways to change advertising so newspapers doesn’t close off to the web but can still increase revenue.
At SXSW I had the opportunity to catch up with Kurt Huang, founder of ThankThis, and test the latest iteration of his startup called “Juicy Bits.” I should start with a disclosure: I’m an advisor to ThankThis. But this post will not be a “pitch.” Rather, it’s a call for participation with a startup that has cuffed its ears and is listening for advice.
