Paid Content had some interesting stuff today (and Friday):
- Getty has bought the citizen journalism photo agency Scoopt
- USAToday says it's getting 5,000 registrations a day on its redesigned Web site, despite grumbling from some readers.
- Topix.net, the news consortium, spent a million to buy its .com domain and plans on moving over there. Personally, I think the "net" is a lot easier to remember. Eventually the ".net" goes away, but Topix is worried because much of its traffic is referred from Google, and this could hurt its Google ranking.
- More reminder from the Online Publishers Association conference that mainstream media still sees "community" as something to be owned. (Jeff Jarvis' counter-take on the same thing -- also linked to from Paid Content.)
