Shower thoughts, Scout, The Spinoff and why big media struggles to launch new online media brands—UPDATED

While showers can be vicious killers, water on the neck can also create moments of clarity, so it's generally worth the risk. And last night as I sat in the corner of the shower weeping, scrubbing myself down after another day spent working in trade media, I started thinking about Rachel Glucina—and, more generally, the folly of big media trying to get down with the internet kids.

StopPress looks at how industry is dealing with the issue of viewability.

Food fight: Bauer and Tangible diverge on the paywall path

With digital revenue still not measuring up to print losses and ad blockers becoming more common in the top-right corners of browsers, media owners increasingly have to reassess how they go about sustaining their online businesses. And over the last few weeks, Tangible Media and Bauer, two of the nation's biggest magazine publishers, illustrated there's no concrete rule applicable to doing this, with the pair taking divergent paths as they set about creating commercially sustainable online properties. We compare Dish's paywall strategy with Bauer's launch of the Food to Love brand.
