Albuquerque Journal Online – From Free to Fee

kctipton writes “I found a magazine column today about the Albuquerque Journal charging for access starting about 2 years ago, and I was reminded that we discussed this a while back (I think) here at LISNews.

Ten Steps From Free to Fee is a summary of two articles here and here written by Donn Friedman, assistant managing editor for production technology and new media innovations at the Albuquerque Journal.

Mr. Friedman writes about the behind-the-scenes decisionmaking to not charge in the beginning (1996) and then charge about 5 years later, and he highlights the results of those changes.”
