Let's talk ad-blocking.

With the arrival of iOS 9, ad-blocking is coming to mobile in a big way, and it's causing a lot of talk all over the web. It is highlighting the internal struggle some feel about the practice, but also the hypocrisy of some of its staunchest proponents. So far, it seems like the real 'bloodbath' isn't taking place where people thought it would be - namely, publishers - but among personalities.

I sort of agree about the small payment, but I also don't want lots of content to go behind a paywall.

It's much better if everything can be indexed by search engine robots and easily found and universally accessible.

Maybe what we need is more like a kickstarted approach.

You want to write an article ? (or have already written one) If enough people pay for it (you might get early access), after a threshold is reached it gets published.
