Re: [DML] DeLorean magazines.



Ken - you are absolutely correct.  The reason that mainstream magazines
can go with an online model is that they are trading paper production 
and distribution costs for severely reduced subscription revenue.  The
business model is that they get their revenue on the advertising side
and don't really care about how many times a download gets
copied - they are after eyeballs for their advertisers.  The problem with 
the model is that they can't reliably count eyballs for all of the copies,
so advertising rates drop as a result.  To keep that from happening, 
PDF or other "bounded" content is not provided.  You have to navigate
the site to see content, and printing is limited to one article at a time.
