Adblockers are immoral and mobile networks should know better

Adblockers are immoral and mobile networks should know better | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it
As an editor, I feel resentful of people who enjoy my work but proudly run an ablocker to starve my content of revenue. Now the Financial Times reports that European mobile networks are planning to offer ad-blocking as a service to their customers.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

This is an article that is also an ad that gives voice to an ad company and tells the story of why ads matter. Even personal bloggers will use ads to increase the chance their blog will someday also provide some income for the time they give to writing their content.

Strength: the design is very creative

Weakness: I don't understand why they represent Spider-Man in this. Also the words are very jammed packed, causing this to look clustered. 

Francine White's curator insight, May 12, 11:26 AM

Positive: cool topic

negative: a little jumbled & not well organized

Internet 'rationing' needed as UK cannot keep up with demand

Internet 'rationing' needed as UK cannot keep up with demand | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it
The Internet is already consuming at least 8 per cent of Britain's power output, equivalent to the output of three nuclear power stations, and demand is soaring, says one academic.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Well, if internet access is rationed it sounds like it is time to turn the internet into a public service so citizens are not just ripped off by private networks and have more direct input and control over how any rationing occurs and to ensure it is not simply a handy way to price gouge and hand access mainly to the wealthy few.

The service providers don't want the rules implemented while they're suing over them.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

This is more evidence we need to revoke or not renew business charters for these service providers that work against the interest of acquiring the services we truly want as consumers. Plus they obliviously divert our communication and content access payments to political activities and law suits rather than service upgrades and more value for our buck. GO FCC! PLEASE TAKE THESE VULTURES AND VAMPIRE COMPANIES ON AND HOLD THEIR FEET TO THE FIRE TO DELIVER THE SERVICES WE WANT FOR THE MONEY WE PAY!
