New nonprofit paper tested in SF; no ads but $2
“We don’t know what the consumer demand is for a product like this, because there has never been a product like this,” Michael Stoll, executive director of the San Francisco Public Press, told Bay Citizen. “That’s one of the reasons we’re calling this a prototype, and part of what we’re prototyping is the business model.”
The Public Press already has a website, but it wanted to see how a printed paper would be received by readers. Another goal is to bridge the digital divide.
