[ NNSquad ] "Free" Internet and "Free" Libraries


In reference to your comment about those who want neither paid nor
ad-supported web sites, note some of the same phenomenon at work
concerning "free" libraries. Some of the most intense users of such
facilities never donate to them, and probably would vote against a
special levy to fund them. Only when the cost of the library is buried
in general tax revenues do these same people actually support the
institution they are using.

We can certainly fund at least a portion of "the web" this way (with
general tax revenues). But the library experience shows that it is
likely to be a small portion of the existing web that would ever be
supported this way.
