first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Says McClure, “There is a role for freemium, but unless you missed the TPS report the FREE part is only a loss-leader for the MEE-YUM part — it’s a test-drive before you buy something. If your users are just kicking the tires then you need to kick them to the curb eventually.” McClure is right. It’s been a long time since eyeballs have automatically equated to dollars. If you’ve got a product that even a small number of users will pay for on a regular basis, establish that paid user base as soon as you possibly can.

In a recent blog post he makes the assertion that “subscription models are the new black,” despite the fact that startup monetization has focussed heavily on cost-per-click advertising. He writes, “This Don’t-Be-Evil-AdWords-Click-Happiness..It’s made us a bunch of lazy, ad-happy, Web-Tards with crappy ROI…We have largely WASTED an entire web decade of time, energy & venture capital on extremely inefficient revenue models.” While we might not have chosen this exact phrasing, we cannot agree with McClure more. Nowhere is freemium model failure more obvious than in the streaming music space. Even with millions of users and licensing deals with major labels, Imeem was acquired by MySpace last year and quickly dismantled. The cost of licensing content to unpaying users was enough to put the company into serious debt. The company’s subscription service just wasn’t enough to offset the cost of the freemium business. Meanwhile, myriad music sites have come and gone, but Rhapsody’s subscription-only service has managed to survive. Having learned from its predecessors, it’s rumored that Spotify will only launch in the US with a subscription model, despite its free European offerings. last_img read more

first_imgKashmiri youths have now found a new passion that is motivating them to aim for the peak and conquer the mountains. Hundreds of youths go for trekking in summers as security scenario improves in the Valley.Riyaz Ahmad Lone, who resides in picturesque Pahalgam valley, prefers to trek along with his friends to Kolahoi Peak, 17,799 ft, in Anantnag district of South Kashmir.This peak is part of the Himalaya Range. “We use old trekking routes. As I am a local and know the terrain well, I lead the team,” Lone, a hotelier and an environment activist, said. Rauf Tramboo, who is the president of Adventure Travel Consultant, cannot do without trekking. For past 30 years, he has been trekking in the Valley and Ladakh.But, nowadays, he says, there is a change in the perception regarding trekking and mountaineering. “More and more youngsters, including college students, government employees, have started joining in, thanks to the internet and the conducive atmosphere,” Tramboo said.Mahmood Ahmad Shah, an avid trekker who is heading Jammu and Kashmir Mountaineering and Hiking Club, established by educationist Tyndale Biscoe in 19th century in Srinagar, has set high goals for the youngsters. Last year his club took an initiative of starting a Facebook page inviting youngsters for trekking. The invite elicited huge response. “We took youngsters for trekking to hills in Srinagar and subsequently guided them towards mountains in different parts of the Valley,” he says.Every Sunday the club takes youngsters to trekking. However, Shah’s ultimate aim is that these youngsters should become mountaineers. “We want to open up Kashmir for Kashmiris,” Shah said. This year his club sent four boys to Jawahar Institute of Mountaineering and Winter Sports at Nunwan, Pahalgam. The institute is a joint venture between Ministry of Defence and state government’s Department of Tourism.advertisement”Youngsters don’t know about the institute. Its training fee is around `4,500. We hope in coming days youths who are part of our trekking programmes would move to mountaineering after proper training,” Shah said. “We want our boys to make it to the top. Scale Mount Everest one day,” he added. He conceded that most of the trekking initiatives taking place in the Valley are private adventures with youths taking local guides or local boys along to go for trekking.last_img
