Would You Pay to Keep Domino Online?

dominogg.pngThere was a louder than usual outcry yesterday at the news that Conde Nast was folding its upscale shelter magazine Domino, with many people expressing dismay that the website, Dominomag.com, would also go dark.

Of course, this follows all the recent chatter regarding Conde Nast‘s lack of investment in their website properties beyond using them as a device with which to further subscription sale, so it’s not a total surprise the website will go down also. However, it got us thinking — would people be willing to pay a smaller subscription fee for access to a content-rich website, should a company decide to keep it running in lieu of the printed magazine? What say you readers? We suspect this financial crisis will see the end of free content across the board, and perhaps the disappearance of magazines with devoted followings, such as Domino, may be just the thing to kickstart people into paying for access.

Would you pay a subscription fee for a website whose print version has been shuttered?
