Salon.com’s Still Alive on its Seventh Birthday: Nope, this is not an “Onionesque” headline. Salon.com is celebrating its seventh birthay, and “we’re as surprised as some of you are that we’re still here,” according to a note from David Talbot, the editor-in-chief of the site.

“Just before we launched our subscription service last year, one of the prophets of Salon doom, something called eMarketer, informed its readers that this was a last-gasp strategy: “Some analysts view this as a last resort that won’t last long.” But Salon still stands, in large part because of the nearly 50,000 readers who now subscribe — over 44,000 for Salon Premium and over 5,000 for the Well and Table Talk. In fact, more readers signed up for subscriptions in October than in any other month since we launched the Premium service — and November is shaping up as another record month.”
