The Guardian reports today that the BBC is going to be scaling back its investment in the net:

Some of the BBC's websites are likely to close as the corporation cuts back on its online investment, BBC new media director Ashley Highfield admitted today.

...

In the last two years, the BBC's web traffic has more than doubled from 4.2 million users to 8.5 million.

As a result, the BBC is also spending increasingly more money on its technical infrastructure and Mr Highfield said that another key goal was to decrease the amount of time that users had to wait for pages to download.

Hmmm, where have I read that expenses increase as the audience increases? Oh yeah, right here.
