 Here's an updated version of our Opt-In Networking Event on Monday afternoon on Emerging Financial Models:


It seems like a never-ending content quandry: Free or Fee? Or perhaps a combination? In recent months, we've seen some radical changes in digital content financial models--with the NYTimes.com going from free to fee, Elsevier announcing ad-supported portals for scientists, Facebook and MySpace announcing new ad-based monetization strategies, and Rupert Murdoch's NewsCorp vacillating on whether to make wsj.com fee or free. Reed Elsevier puts the trade press unit up for sale, worried about the cyclical nature of advertising. Haworth Press, acquired by Taylor &  Francis, suddenly wants extra money for the online segment of its journals, previously bundled with the print product. Wired editor Chris Anderson's cover story in the March 2008 issue of Wired was titled, "Free! Why $0.00 is the Future of Business." But is it the future of econtent? What's the latest news? What do the new models mean for your content space? Will subscriptions continue to fade? What is the real price of free content? What impact do emerging financial models have on corporate libraries? Can large-scale content users ever rely solely on free data or are there some absolute must-have subscription products? Join the discussion, facilitated by EContent editor Michelle Manafy and Marydee Ojala, editor of ONLINE.
