BAD BUSINESS MODEL
Salon has never been my favorite of the online journals but was once worth a regular skim to find an article or two. When they went from ad based to a mostly subscriber format, that became less true it was still worth checking out from time to time. Now, they have apparently come out with a new business model: you have to watch a 20-second movie to get to even so much as the table of contents. Bye bye, Salon.
