SALON LIVES
le boudoir
It looks like my reports of Salon.com's demise were greatly exaggerated. Not only is the site still around, it appears that the company has reached something pretty close to financial viability, with paid subscriptions now accounting for the bulk of its revenue. In other words, it's operating like a "real" magazine now.

Good news. It's nice to see Salon having pulled it off. Perhaps success here can serve as a model for future online media channels.
