If The NY Times Paywall Were a Kickstarter Project…

The new paywall rolled out by The NY Times last week is so convoluted, customers would be forgiven for thinking it was intended to make them throw up their hands and just subscribe to the paper version.

Execs at The Times keep insisting their data shows many readers really want to pay for the stories they read online, they just didn’t have that option yet.

With that in mind, Creative Common’s Mike Linksvayer threw together a mock Kickstarter Project that encourages users to donate just the right amount.
