Internet & Networking There's an article today at abc.com that looks at recent trends around net-based pay-for services and the smattering of paywalls from News Corp to the NYT that are up or threatening to be put up, and speculating that this could be the beginning of a trend. Of course, a YouTube video rental site and a few large publishers putting up paywalls will make zero difference to the "free internet" on their own. But if they're successful, it could spark emulation. But could this be a trend that could snowball enough to change the nature of the net?

Screw NewsCorp and other mainstream crap. I don't even read their 'news for dummies'. I also don't care for the 'multimedia content'. This is just hilarious how one man can never have enough of these green paper things.
