MIT Technology Review Goes Digital First

Why MIT’s Technology Review is going digital first — Tech News and Analysis: "Pontin also noted that at least some of what he has been able to do with Technology Review was made possible because the magazine is a not-for-profit corporation controlled by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Although he still has to pay for things out of a fixed budget, Pontin said this public mandate did make it somewhat easier to take risks or experiment with different models (in the same way that British newspaper The Guardian was able to take a “digital first” approach thanks in part to being owned by a charitable trust rather than a for-profit or publicly-traded corporation). “I have enormous sympathy for established media companies,” Pontin said. “There are smart editors out there and smart publishers, and at a high level the lineaments of what the future of publishing will look like are more broadly understood than new media critics sometimes allow. But in many cases those smart publishers and editors are constrained by the actual economic demands of publishing companies.” Unless some of those constraints are removed, Pontin suggests, those entities could face a very bleak future indeed."
