Nick Carr on User Generated Content
Have to give Nick his due on this one as it is hard to disagree with what he is saying. The big money will find its way to the service providers. For users to get their hands on it they will have to be either creators of exceptional content, dead lucky or dead clever when devising the influences behind getting consumers to part with hard cash.
Thankfully most of the user-gen population are in on this action for the fun of it. My lord, imagine how you net usage would change if you had to pay a (time based?) rate on each page you visited.
You can be sure you wouldn't spend four and a half minutes sitting through the My Humps YouTube video that Nick points to.
