I think there are other and better ways to monetize your research than charging $60 for the information from mostly "private" readers. I'd be interested to see how many people will actually pay the $60 - I am sure you're not going to be happy with the final (check)sum. Of course it is equally difficult and probably even more disputable to approach the selected companies for money..... so I see your conflict but the chosen way out is not going to work. So better start looking for alternatives...

I accept your annoying "pop-ups" whenever I want to read an article as a necessary evil in order to get free content, but to ask for $60 to read a list is outrageous. Isn't sponsorship through the pop-ups enough? I'd like to see your list, but Hell will freeze over before I pay for it. Moreover, if this is a harbinger of things to come, count me out as a reader.

The question is, would you pay to use this web site? How else can we support the journalism that you're accustomed to getting for free? --S.Rambo, managing editor, ESD magazine

My Semiconductor Times newsletter and database has >1500 companies, is fully searchable, has complete company profiles, includes a subscription to Semiconductor Times, and is priced at much, much less than a dollar a company. Agreed -- its not easy selling content these days. Year 2000 is a distant memory.

60 companies and 60$ seems to be lot of money for any individual user. I only think the companies will be interested to check this list. 21 startups included in top 60, seems like there is always new technologies with the semiconductors.

Congratulations on reaching version 10.0 of this always interesting list. Just a shame that people are unlikely to read it due to having to pay $60 even to see it. I understand and am very sympathetic to the problem of publishers not getting the revenue they used to, but a better way to do this might be to have the list visible but the detail only available to registered buyers. So you see that a company is in the list and what it does, but if you want to know why EETimes thinks it's one to watch, then you have to pay. I'd be a lot more motivated to buy it on that basis.
