A concern for me is the lack of innovation on revenue models. It seems there is no market pressure out there to drive anything new. It feels like we are at a standstill where pay models are often non-starters and ads are the go to. What’s in between? What can change the paradigm? Or are we fine with where we are?

I feel frustrated about this too, and I’m surprised that no startup (that I’m aware of) has chosen a model which removes the middle man. I sense that blockchain tech will soon allow users to sell their data directly to the highest bidder, with a small percentage going to the platform to cover costs. For this to work we need to relook at the concept of “ownership” of data. I sense that time is coming — soon.
