Via Glenn Reynolds, Technology Review takes a long, hard look at the impact of "tube" sites on the economics of the porn business. The article is actually SFW in all but the most blue-nosed of workplaces, and one of its better bits is the little author bio at the end:
Scott Fayner ran the popular gossip site Luke Ford.com, covering the porn industry. Today he publishes a monthly online magazine dedicated to Boston dogs, called MassArf.
That seems like quite a professional journey, even for a writer.
Thanks for the link TH - for those still interested in a 'behind the scenes' look at the modern porn industry, check this out:
It's reasonably NSFW, but very informative & objective.
There's even a Princeton angle on the second page of the article. "Jonathan Coopersmith, a history professor at Texas A&M who has studied the porn industry for more than a decade," is a member of the Class of 1978. I worked with him at the Princetonian.
