Robin Good's curator insight, June 18, 2013 8:50 AM



The Atlantic launches this week a paid, weekly curated selection of its best stories called the Atlantic Weekly.


From AdWeek: "The Atlantic Weekly will collect the week's best stories from TheAtlantic.com, The Atlantic Wire and The Atlantic Cities, as well as selections from its In Focus photo blog and an article from the magazine’s archive (reproduced as it originally appeared in print), reformatted as a magazine for the iPad and iPhone.


...will cost $1.99 for a single issue. Readers can also subscribe for $2.99 a month or $19.99 a year."


The reason for choosing this new direction sums up to this confession from editor in chief James Bennet: "Our concern has been that some of our better [online] pieces can get lost during the week, and that we’re not serving our readers as well on the weekend when there is time to lean back and digest a good idea."


"...will users pay for a magazine filled mostly with content that they can access for free on the Web?"


What do you think?
