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.

I do not agree with all the points made int he article but I do not disagree either. I think there is room for various revenue/payment models to work depending on what type of product is being sold or information distributed.

But I would like to see rebuttal articles, especially by educated technical writers, be a bit more civilized. Demeaning with words such as "silliness" and "dumber" leave a bad taste. Can we disagree without belittling.

Thank you.
