>      (FRANCE) -- In a new twist on the conventional wisdom, which has been
> known to predict the death of print at the hands of the Internet, an
> article in the Pfeiffer Report suggests that most online publications may
> be headed for the trash heap. Now that the mad rush to publish online has
> quieted, the truth is becoming obvious: Online content isn't a big
> money-maker. Advertising is minimal, readers generally won't pay for
> online subscriptions, and studies show that most visitors to online
> newspaper sites are there to get more information about something they've
> seen in the print version. According to Andreas Pfeiffer, what this all
> means is that "The Internet is not a replacement for current information
> delivery models but an extension of them." The wholesale disappearance of
> online publications isn't likely, but the expectation is that most
> "content-only" Web sites will vanish. The majority of survivors will be
> those online sites that exist as adjuncts to healthy print publications.
