Parent article: On the future of LWN
I have a hard time justifying paying for access to content on the internet. Now something tangible like a newspaper I can hold in my hand is well worth paying for (I think it's psycological). I assume a lot of people feel the same way I do.
Make a subscription to a printed version available for ~ 30-60 (depending on weekly or monthly) dollars a year, and I will send a check right now.
As far as the expenses of printing are concerned, I suggest you do something different than all the other magazines out there.
Print on newsprint. This will save on printing costs, as well as reinforce the quality of the editorial content. I believe this will bring in a lot more advertisers as well. Plus newspaper printing technology is optimized for speed as opposed to quality, which will allow for the paper to be weekly
LWN will become the newspaper of the Linux - Free Software - Open Source movement.
Think About it.
