If I may chime in here, I think what might be going on is similar to what happened to the music…

Good points. I think you could enhance the points by mentioning that apple has made billions from their music business.

While I am not saying that medium embracing large publications is in the same ballpark, one can hope, as that combination of Spotify and iTunes showed a possible direction.

Your argument falls short by mentioning apple but not including its results. So either redact apple or include it. Just one suggestion but I did appreciate the piece.
