Masnick, over at TechDirt has a philosophy that, if you oversimplify it, boils down to “even if people give your stuff away for free, you can still make money charging for it if you give superior service.”
Here is proof that he is right.
Well, I dunno… Mike also says stuff like “if you can’t compete with free, [something bad about you].” But, by the way the hippie gets all upset, it looks like the opposite. Free can’t compete with paid!
Meh, lets just stick with Masnick proven right.
