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.

But unlike phones, by browsing one single site you could be actually accessing several different pay sites at the same time through iframes or whatever.

And you can bet the very moment they can get your money on a per visit basis they will do exactly that kind of stuff.

Sure, those 3rd party middle men would have to enforce a strict usage policy, that would prohibit that kind of behaviour.
