As the Web was taking off in 1993, I was the editor of new media for Time Inc., in charge of the magazine company’s Internet strategy. In previous years, we had made deals with the dialup online services, such as AOL, CompuServe, and Prodigy. We supplied our content, marketed their services to our subscribers, and moderated chat rooms and bulletin boards that built up communities of members. For that, we were able to command between one and two million dollars in annual royalties.
