I’ve quoted you in a blog on the closure of Tilt ‘a cautionary tale of product development’ just published bit.ly/rWRUef

It got better over time, I thought the quality vector was going in the right direction. But, absolutely over priced. The suggestion of free access to subscribers is interesting. The immediate interest would have been there.

I hear from journalists that FT mgmt is always scrambling to make the business work. But I have to say they have the rest of the business press beat by miles. Say what you will about the paywall, I love my FT.com sub.

There was something goofy about the use of the #! AJAX URL pattern that frequently I’d click through to a story and just end up at the tile homepage. The content was frequently good, but although I pay for the FT in print & online, the pricing for tilt was far above any benefit I thought I’d get from it.

However I’d be interested to know how you were able to access FT Tilt over the past nine months given the ludicrously high paywall. Did Reuters pay for a subscription?
