Washington Post Ombudsman throws cold water on paywall, for now at least

http://j.mp/GNUolq  (Washington Post)

   "The other thing to consider is that if everyone else is putting up
    paywalls, and The Post doesn't, it has a huge opportunity. It could be
    the only quality news site that remains free. And ponder this: What if
    The Post, through its innovative uses of technology and social media -
    witness its Facebook app Social Reader; more than 15 million people
    downloaded it in just over five months - cracks the code for how to
    make money with digital content. Then The Post would be formidable.
    Post executives just met in California with the powerhouses of Silicon
    Valley. This is not coincidence."
