News Corp’s iPad newspaper, The Daily, will launch Wednesday with a party at the Guggenheim.
The staff of 100 (including such luminaries as Richard Johnson and Jesse Angelo of the New York Post and the New Yorker’s Sasha Frere-Jones have surely been working like crazy to get to this moment.
Will it work? Will people pay a buck a week? Will people even read that much on their iPads? Will The Daily’s social media strategist, Abigail Jones, have any luck Tweeting out links to stories if they’re unavailable to anyone but subscribers?
Until next Wednesday, nobody will know the answers to these questions. But we can’t wait to find out.
