ARE YOU THINKING MAN!!!
Not only has this guy quit his day job so he can post on his
blog, but he's doing it without advertisers. Something about being
unwilling to put ads in his editoral content. Ok dude, you're not
the fuckin New York Times, I think you continuing to be able to live
should come before your "journalistic" standards! Get some ads
before you starve!!
And then he says "there's got to be a better way to support media
that doesn't involve advertising". Really? And you're going to
invent one, now, after 150 years of media in all forms have proven
you wrong? Here's how you support media. You have three options:
Subscriptions, Advertisers, or Having a Real Job. Pick one out of
three, wait, and repeat until you have money to buy food. It's not
rocket science, it's history.
I'm not even sure what his
site is. Right up front in the most important spot he has links
to other sites, in effect, sending people away (he even says "feel
free to leave at any time"). A few random thoughts, them more
external links. Then him asking for money. Then more links. Anyway,
I wish this guy luck. I think it's a horrible mistake, but, then
again, it might be fun to see what happens.
