Tuesday Must Reads

Tom Evslin on why simple subscription pricing beats complicated usage pricing every time.

Nick Denton’s postings of his sites’ traffic vs. the direct competition.  These comparisons are not always flattering to Nick’s sites.  And the transparency he is embracing impresses the hell out of me.

Searchview’s post on Claria going "behavioral" (aka respectable).  Can the prodigal son get back in the good graces of the industry?  We’ll see.

Seth Godin’s post on the absolutely most maddening thing on the web – the stupid dropdown box to select the state you live in.  God do I hate that thing!!!
