A good interview with Dave Shaffer, CEO of Thomson Financial, one of the biggest financial information companies. It earns $1 billion from online information services. The most interesting observation: “There are certain parts of our business that are more affected than others, but that isn’t dependent upon whether our data is distributed electronically or via print. It’s more dependent upon how many people have lost their jobs in that particular segment. That’s what’s impacting content providers’ ability to gain revenue. And I think if you look at our specific experience, print has eroded more quickly than we thought it would erode in this economy as opposed to electronic net growth.”
