"Twitter created as fundamental a technical innovation as e-mail and HTML itself, and they totally blew it," says Caldwell. He draws an analogy with the early days of the Web, when Netscape got the medium started by releasing the first mass-market Web browser. "If Netscape had decided to build a proprietary ecosystem and become a media company supported by advertising, we wouldn't have the Web we do today," Caldwell says.Forget social networks. I want even ISPs to be ad supported. The funny thing is at higher speeds better ads are possible and so ad supported ISP makes the most sense at gigabit speeds.
