Re: Article from The Atlantic on the ad-support internet

This is a well-written, thought-provoking article, well worth reading albeit a bit long.
David, please consider forwarding to the AC list and www-tag.

The solution it recommends, fee-for-service, will not solve all the Web's problems but is
certainly worth debating.   Even charging a fraction of a cent for every email you send
would have a major impact on spam.

I wish, though, the article had explored further the parallels with another ad-supported
industry: network TV.

All the best,
