An interview with Roger Fidler, Director of the Institute for CyberInformation at Kent State University, and an electronic content distribution pioneer. The interview focuses on his efforts on developing electronic newspaper technology for tablet PCs, especially with LA Times: “We are looking at the single copy price that will be comparable to printed copy of a national edition of a newspaper. The subscription price we anticipate would be significantly lower with the idea that it would be much more appealing for a person to subscribe to the electronic edition and to have a habit of reading it electronically. We haven’t set a price yet for the subscription. The price will probably work out something closer to the equivalent of $.25 or $.30 a copy.”
