Have we ever charged enough?
Great quote from “Mr. Magazine” Samir Husni in an interview with, in light of the constant debate of how to charge readers for online content:

"What really bothers me more than anything else: Now you are talking about you want to charge for your magazines online. Well, how about you start charging in print? You know? Since World War II we are giving our magazines away. When I subscribe to Auto magazine for $5.00 for an entire year, or for Elle magazine for 10 bucks, or for Newsweek, which until recently was $10 for an entire year, am I really paying for the magazine?"
