Rolling back the ad-dependency, funding content peer-to-peer #831
[ UUID ] 5483ab94-88e3-483c-9417-69014c786187
[ Session Name ] Rolling back the ad-dependency, funding content peer-to-peer
[ Submitter's Name ] Laura Dornheim
[ Additional facilitators ] Linus Olsson
What will happen in your session?
We will give a brief introduction about the development from truly free content in the very early days of the internet to the wide-spread ad-dependency that funds online content today. Subscription models are technically and privacy-wise a better option but impose massive hurdles (and cost) to users.
What is the goal or outcome of your session?
We want to further educate about the negative impacts of the dependency on advertising not only in journalism, but all across the web, email-providers, dating sites, YouTube channels...
If your session requires additional materials or electronic equipment, please outline your needs.
Users with devices (preferably laptops) will be sufficient!
