Jonathan Poritsky interviewing Readability’s Richard Ziade asks:

Your support documents state that “premium supports the costs to run the service, continued development” and paying publishers. If all of your customers go with a free account, how does Readability intend to make money?

Ziade answers:

We’re still navigating towards a plan in that respect. Right now, we just want to build a big and engaged community.

I.e.: “we have no clue.”

It’s also interesting how Poritsky asked about supporting Readability with ads, the same “feature” that Ziade seems to have designed Readability to avoid, to which Ziade gives a couple of “backed my self in a corner” hilarious answers to.

I now have less faith in Readability’s motives.
