so you're a money guy huh? Able to pay for articles huh! get a load of this guy!


In all seriousness, When we lock information behind paywalls we deny people knowledge. Its frustrating when you’re trying to learn about a subject only to be shut out by a paywall (cough cough 12ft.io/ bypass paywalls extension cough). It's obvious why paywalls exist, companies need money, you want a product; demand and sell or whatever. But when we look at the rising cost of living; why do we have to capitalize people's education? My textbooks already cost me like 10 dinners. We have already figured out how to capitalize the internet (at the expense of users) with ad space and data selling; so why must they wring our pockets further! Additionally, with our internet being polluted with misinformation, can we afford to not have our information free?
