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?
