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.

Isn't editorializing and philosophizing what the comments sections are for?

Not always. We've always been willing to give a reader who wants to spend time on a full-length treatment of his or her ideas a forum to air them. When talking with Mufasa about this, I did insist that the rebuttal not just be a rambling opinion, but backed up with complete reasoning and some independent research, however.
