A new poll is up and though it’s not specifically redevelopment related, I thought it’d be an interesting take on the evolution of the news media. Metropolitan newspapers have folded in cities like Denver and an fascinating experiment is under way in Seattle, where a major daily has gone completely Web-only.
Don’t be alarmed, there are no plans to “monetize” the blog through subscription fees or even ads, and I pulled numbers below out of the air. No fancy market research or anything, just an discussion about the future of local news.

* $1 per blog post
* A buck a week is as high as I’d go
* How’s a dollar a month sound?
* You mean you’d pay me, right?
