Why the O'Colly experiment is worthwhile

Last week, I was interviewed by Marc Parry of the Chronicle of Higher Education’s technology blog for a story about the upcoming paywall at the O’Colly at Oklahoma State University.

You can read the article above, but I hope it comes through that I welcome the experimentation in new business models for college news, but don’t expect this particular experiment to be any sort of magic bullet.

I do think there will be a number of college newspapers looking at this experiment closely, and I hope the O’Collegian is open with the results.
