An Ad-Blocking Compromise

I think more paid content will be the result. And that’s a good thing. Some people might not want to hear this, but once you ask people to start paying for your work, you quickly discover what its true value is. That’s why the WSJ has flourished while other papers have fallen by the wayside. I have no problem paying to read The Economist online, but I won’t pay to read HuffPo (but maybe others would). It’s like how musicians could previously bundle a bunch of crappy songs with one hit and sell a CD because users had no other option if they wanted the hit. Once users could buy individual songs, the value of each song became much more apparent.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
