Re: Alternative business model please

"Today's internet was built on the back of advertisers' dollars, yes?"

I suppose that depends on what you mean by "today's internet". You're really talking about the web, not the internet, and a certain large segment of the web is absolutely built on ad dollars. But another large segment of the web was not.

The internet itself is not primarily ad-driven and was not built on advertiser's dollars.
