Ah, a universal subscription. Would have to be mandated by something/somebody. Yes, I know a small organisation supposedly beholden to no one that does the vetting and collecting. Of course this organisation will need CEO's, CFO's marketing and IT people along with the usual hangers on. If thats not bad enough imagine if government got involved. Of course they'll need to be paid, expensively of course as thats how, we're told, you get the best people. Then all these best people will have to decide where the money goes, through a great big process of validation of content creators and picking their favourites. Of course these people will need to go to international conferences of like minds to study "disruption" etc. Then may after a while they could say that accredited organisations will only get paid, of course accredited organisations will have a minimum of 50 staff, 5 of them journalists. Maybe they could, just maybe, allow the little guy at a later stage, of course you'll have to register and keep up your registration, $1000 per annum should be enough to cover it. This Year.
"To enable our valued customers to obtain access to the webs best and most informative content us here at Robber ISP unfortunately have to raise our monthly content subscription fee to $19.95"
Most of that going to, due to some extensive consultation, Facebook or Google.
Yep, sounds like the way to go.
