    My son created and maintained a Disney Fan website back in the nineties when he was in primary school, and it didn’t cost a dime – that I’m aware of.

    THIS is why monetization of websites happened with ads. it wasn’t cheap to build and maintain them.

    Brings to mind when Zuckerberg was testifying before the senate and he had to answer the question of FB’s monetization to some Luddite. He really had to struggle not to roll his eyes and grin when he responded “We have ads, Senator.”

    There are few Doonesbury characters I feel I’d like to know in real life (if they were real). Kim is one. In some ways, she’s an intelligent Boopsie, who’s another.

    It was 50 years ago today we had our first glimpse of Mike’s younger brother and perhaps a hint as to why Sal turned out the way he did.

    I wonder where the money went? Clearly not devs or else it would be a lot more than that.

    If the world is affected by what we browse, then it’s easy to understand why we are in the shape we are.

    That Profit Margin was why so many people jumped into the Web Hosting business.

    Figure out annual costs, divide it by the number of regular commenters and there’s your service fee/membership charge. It has to start somewhere.
