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 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.


Agreed. We all know it's an opinion piece, but such choices of words smack strongly of immaturity and lack of professionalism. To put it bluntly, the business world has a well-established and even reasonably documented set of manners, and acting like a schmuck (read: arrogant jerk) isn't going to get you very far-- in fact, it's going to limit your career opportunities.

There's a reason why even the lowly A+ certification covers such things!
