From publishing to incubating?--
New York Times Launches Incubator | Adweek: "While programs like TimeSpace are exciting and indicative of the forward-thinking mindset organizations like the Times need to weather the coming years, these types of incubator programs haven't been without friction. In November, Adweek noted that an incubator at the Philadelphia Media Network outraged Newspaper Guild members, who felt the program was funneling resources and funds away from the newsroom. While the Times is most certainly looking for a feel-good story, the proximity to a very public series of buyouts could cue grumblings from the media chattering class. More than anything though, TimeSpace is indicative of the direction the paper is heading, where high-rent space at the top of the masthead is being traded for a more affordable shot at a nimble future."
