Question… Would You Fork Out $240.00 a Year for Online News?

eBay founder Pierre Omidyar has had a soft launch with his new attempt at making news profitable online with the Honolulu Civil Beat and I myself am pretty disappointed that it isn’t going to feature neighbor island news at this time.

I sure won’t be paying $240.00 a year to basically be allowed to make comments on the site… However, what I could do… is simply take snippets of their news and allow any Joe Blow that wants… to make the comments on my site for free.

So I ask the question… would you be willing to pay $240.00 a year to billionaire Omidyar to run what at this point, just looks like a contributory news site run by folks that were hand selected by the billionaire?
