the sac bee started a california politics news site
, yearly subscription is $500. it has in depth blogs, news, and commentary that won't show up in the regular paper. interesting: more full coverage available online, and timely. using the idea that there is a ton of good info, and it doesn't necessarily have to be super-processed (ie, weeded, reworded, and deadlined for printing) to be useful to people. the idea of information abundance strikes me as a very web thing. price sucks, though. it's targeted at people who work closely with the government. as a way for the sac bee to make money? --dunno.
