What would Wal-Mart do?

AP LogoSome react on the Associated Press’ decision to back off its controversial pricing plans for 2009.

I suspect this will cool the defection rumblings a bit, but the plan did cause newspaper companies looking for cost-cutting everywhere to cast a keen eye on their sizable AP bills. That one’s on the evaluation table now.

  1. AP needs to start thinking about other revenue streams they could tap to save their increasingly obsolete business model.
    I have tried to contact them several times about making AP photos and other content available to bloggers for some kind of reasonable micro-payment type fee or subscription. They won’t even return my calls and emails.
    They should do the math on how many newspapers v. how many blogs and other “new media” outlets.
