Internet & Networking It's a somewhat uneasy subject among websites such as OSNews - advertisements, the site's readability, and how to get a little more income without compromising the pleasure of using the site. Brent Simmons published a blog post about the topic which has been making its rounds across the web. The gist: websites, save for a precious few, seem to be getting progressively worse.

Original thinking in the blog article.

I really like the fact that OS News has relatively unobtrusive ads. It's one reason I bookmark it as a favorite for tech news and views.

Well, tried OSnews without ads using membership, now I'm getting a bit short on money so I didn't renew, and as far as ads are concerned it's really what every news website should be.

I don't use ad blockers. If websites don't work, ignoring the fact is not the way to make things change.

Speaking of ads, I wonder how wordpress.com get their funding. I once asked them, and they say it's about premium upgrades, but these really sound too cheap and infrequently necessary to be of any use to them...
