lol a news site started just selling ads themselves instead of using targeted bullshit and made so much more money wired.com/story/can-killing-co

its kind of amazing that newspapers ran for two centuries selling their own ads but google waltzed in and convinced them they couldnt do it on their own any more???

@kate
I love the part saying it will put out of business all those shitty content websites with empty shell articles ...

@kate you know the Inca empire was rulling an entire continent for two centuries and then a bunch of Spanish conquistadores walked in with a few horses, muskets and infinite greed and lack of morality and the rest is the history of rapid fire devastation and cultural anihillation

Never underestimate the disruptive potential of new technologies in the wrong hands

The good news is that its all just software. Any sector of society with two firing neurons could push back if they cared

@kate this has been shown before. Ads well tailored to the content do better than unrelated ads about something you already bought on a shopping platforms a week ago.
