How Paywalls Destroy the Distribution of Quality Ideas

@DavidDavid Smooke

Founder & CEO of Hacker Noon

"The paywall is inherently in conflict with journalism’s primary goal: to educate and inform the public about important issues. When the papers say, “this is so important that we’re making it free,” they’re simultaneously saying that all the other stuff they publish doesn’t really matter, so they’ll charge you for it. It’s hard to imagine a business philosophy that’s more upside-down." - Rob Howard
