Panel : Where will the money be?

Advertising money is flowing to different players, and money is being made in new ways. The nexus between classifieds and newspapers has been broken in most countries. Online media in its various forms is attracting an increasing portion of the pie. Will subscription models or micropayments be viable for online media players? And will corporations spend money on different marketing means than advertising?
