The Economist has caught the eye of late, with notable successes in creative programmatic and experimentation with social platforms.
I caught up with Heather Taylor, Director of Content Strategy at The Economist, to ask a few probing questions.
The Independent recently announced that it will be closing its print newspaper titles and putting all efforts into digital.
It spun the move as a positive, proudly declaring that it is the first newspaper to go digital-only, but anyone who has followed Mark Ritson’s posts about this publication will know the move was likely an unavoidable decision.
I applaud The Independent’s bravery in publicly admitting defeat in the print market, but if it thinks it’s going to succeed with its site in its current state it’s dreaming. Drastic changes are needed.
At the beginning of 2016 things are much rosier at The New York Times than they were two years ago.
Though print is still suffering, there seems to be a greater degree of parity between the incumbent's digital know-how and that of new online-only upstarts.
The paywall is bearing fruit, social media platforms court its content and Google is trying to shine a light on longer form journalism.
The paper has shown itself again to be a restless experimenter across digital platforms and with new digital technology.
'Please turn off your ad blocker!' The plaintive cry echoes down the tubes of the internet.
Although the ad blocker dilemma is a complex and important one, I get perverse enjoyment from reading the different messages that publishers display, imploring users to disable their ad blockers.
Here are 10 of them.
Guardian Labs began in early 2014 with its aim to work with clients to create sponsored content opportunities.
This is a trend in publishing with BuzzFeed and The Telegraph (and more besides) experimenting with in-house content creation tailored for brands.
The Guardian is seeking to rise above some of the disquiet around native advertising (is it a case of the emperor's new clothes?) by simply creating transparent sponsored content to a great standard.
Anna Watkins, who heads up Guardian Labs, was speaking at the IAB's Content Conference and this is what I took from her talk.
For a full intro to native advertising see the new Econsultancy report, Native Advertising: What it means for brands and publishers.
How do The Sun, The Times, The Guardian, The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal manage subscriptions through their mobile news apps?
I've taken a tour through each, despite their slightly different paywall or subscription models. See which you think is finessed and which could do better.

What’s so great about Quartz?
Quartz is a business news publication that's been talked about a lot since its founding, by Atlantic Media Company (publishes The Atlantic), in 2012.
It's built on WordPress, is mobile-first and characterised by a strong team of journalists that produces engaging short and long content that's incredibly sharable.
Here's some more answers to the question 'what's so great about Quartz?'
BuzzFeed is successful in anyone’s book when it comes to creating content their audience wants to consume wherever they are and then share with their friends.
I listened to Will Hayward, VP Europe, BuzzFeed, at the Adobe Summit EMEA 2014. He was talking about how traditional display advertising is still inefficient and how new methods of social distribution of native content are worki.ng for BuzzFeed.
Here I’ve attempted to sum up some of Will’s thoughts.

But that’s sort of the joy of discussing media companies, how do they become more than mere old fashioned publishers. How do they find new streams of revenue and restructure so that subscriptions work and digital actually makes some money?
One of the spots at the aforementioned conference was CEO of the Financial Times, John Ridding having a fireside chat with Ken Doctor, President of Newsonomics.
Many interesting facts, figures and opinions were teased out, so I thought I’d round them up here.
How does a newspaper create new digital products to attract new customers? Understanding your market and adapting your offering accordingly is key, according to Denise Warren from the New York Times.
At Digital Media Strategies 2014, Denise discussed new products, including NYT NOW and their development in the context of selling digital subscriptions.
As the pioneers of the paywall, what do the New York Times team have to say about making revenue from digital and innovation in product development?
