Editorial I read David's post worrying about the end of the free internet and I had to respond, as I strongly disagree that free and advertising-supported content is the future. If anything, it is advertising-supported content that is destined to be a niche strategy, because of new internet technology that enables entirely new models and empowers consumers to have exactly what they want. Advertising will not support much content creation, so I suggest what will.

If you pay $50/mo for cable and watch it continuously, you get X amount of content for $50/mo.

If you then sign up for $50/mo internet and divide your time between the two, you get X amount of content for $100/mo.

If you then join a gym for $50/mo and split your time between the three, you get X amount of content for $150/mo.

X never gets bigger.
