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.

Or perhaps as some sites do, a point system. You purchase points with real $$$ and the more you purchase, the cheaper those points are.

Points could then be allotted to advertisers or providers or what-have-you. The value of the points would vary of course but could be guaranteed to fall within a specific range of real value.
