The new wave of media

A whole bunch of new written media outlets have arrived. All experimenting with different business models (subscriptions, donations, sponsors, advertising, conferences, etc).

No surprise: none seems to really work. Frankly, trying to guess who’s gonna make it is almost as much fun as reading them.

My list as of now;

In Italy? Il Post and Linkiesta are the ones I prefer, but basically they are web-only newspapers, betting on advertising. As usual, very little experimentation here.

A few one man shows in the US are thriving. The more specialized the better. Mainly monetising with consulting, books, venture deals. Again, almost nothing of the kind in Italy.

Am I missing something?
