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 may sound cheap, but let me say: if every website starts charging small amounts for each page I visit, I will stop using the internet.


I agree. Users aren't eager to start paying for content or services which are free now. They are already paying some good money for unlimited connection etc.
