From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

PaidContent.org is an online media hub that covers news, information and analysis of the business of digital media. It was founded in 2002 by journalist Rafat Ali to "chronicle the evolution of digital content that is shaping the future of the media, information and entertainment industries."[1]

Funded by Alan Patricof's Greycroft Partners in 2006, Rafat Ali's umbrella company, ContentNext, has offices in Santa Monica, California and New York. ContentNext operates the highly rated PaidContent.org, PaidContent.org:UK, MocoNews.net, which covers the business of mobile content, and ContentSutra.com, which covers India's digital media markets. [2] ContentNext also administrates several technology and digital media conferences, and it is headed up by chief executive Nathan Richardson.

In 2008, ContentNext was purchased by Guardian Media Group for a reported $30 million. [3] It is now a member of the Guardian Professional Group, though founder/editor Ali and CEO Richardson, formerly of Yahoo! Finance[4], will continue to run the media website as an independent business.[5]
