Internet & Networking There's an article today at that looks at recent trends around net-based pay-for services and the smattering of paywalls from News Corp to the NYT that are up or threatening to be put up, and speculating that this could be the beginning of a trend. Of course, a YouTube video rental site and a few large publishers putting up paywalls will make zero difference to the "free internet" on their own. But if they're successful, it could spark emulation. But could this be a trend that could snowball enough to change the nature of the net?

No you are wrong. People could always interpret situations within the boundary of their own knowledge, and people are also very subjective mostly on the things they do not know or do not understand fully. Therefore, I prefer news media for information regarding such happenings much more than tweets or blogs of non technical people.
