Updates, paid subscriptions, etc.
I think the subscription model is dead. I will pay for a daily paper but not for 20. I certainly don't like the current PickPocket model where my credit card is charged monthly without warning.
I used to be able to go to the newsstand. If a paper or magazine had an interesting article I'd buy it. But I wouldn't subscribe to 20 magazines. There are too many individual writers for me to subscribe to them all. Please ask Substack to implement "Pay Per View". I'd pay a reasonable sum for the individual articles I want to read.
