NY Times: Pay Me For My Content

Here’s a great article by Jaron Lanier from the NY Times.  Favorite quotes below…


“There's an almost religious belief in the Valley that charging for content is bad. The only business plan in sight is ever more advertising. One might ask what will be left to advertise once everyone is aggregated.”


“Affordable turns out to be much harder than free when it comes to information technology, but we are smart enough to figure it out. We owe it to ourselves and to our creative friends to acknowledge the negative results of our old idealism. We need to grow up.”
