Scott Karp on Google and the Long Tail.

It seems to be the day for bashing gatekeepers and those who act as the new masters of published content.

Scott Karp has a fine post on how the worm might turn. From the post:

What if the Google proletariat were to suddenly rise up en masse and throw off the yoke of AdSense?

What if the masses of sites that only make a few bucks a day off of Google decide that the chump change isn’t worth being complicit in supporting Google’s hegemony?

What if we all tell AdSense to take a frigging hike and stop living off us like leeches?

To misquote Morrissey: Content producers of the world, unite and take over!

I’ve taken down my PPC ads for a day in protest — care to join and see what happens?
