I think about this a lot too – I read the article on the post cause I still had some free views.
I am guessing Fred couldn’t cause he already used his free views, so it is not like he is just reading that one opinion article. 😉
That being said I feel this conundrum more with email newsletters and what I am guessing soon is the podcasts attached to them.
Not sure the ATM analogy works since that is about withdrawing money unless Fred means that you pay somewhere and everyone can pull from it?
This is where crypto is super interesting but all the media plays attached to coins have not worked out.
Something does need to change though since I am NOT gonna be able to subscribe to everything and the big boys will also win the paywall game if we can’t figure out a better model.
