Default Would You Pay For Each Web Site You Visit?

Money, Money, Money.......That's what the owners of web sites are looking for and I don't blame them. However, now they want to start charging you for a visit.

The Detroit Free Press and The Detroit News have already down sized their newspapers and have an E-Edition that costs I believe 12 bucks a month to visit. They also have their free web sites but they are really not very good.

So the question of the day is, "would you pay to visit a web site?"

================================================== =========

How much would you pay to read this page? At about 2,000 of the 50,000 or so words in the printed version of the Financial Times, it should in theory be worth about 4 per cent of the newspaper’s cover price – 10 US cents, 17˝ euro cents or 8p.

To readers particularly interested in the subject, perhaps, it may be worth more. To others, though no journalist would like to admit as much, it will be worth nothing.

I answered NO but I do have one exception. I do subscribe to a service through a web site that I need for my business. They provide forms to their subscribers and I need those forms and they are not available anywhere else.

I think that is the case for business. But Obama said today in his speech about Cyber Security that the internet is suppose to be free and safe.
