Andrew Sullivan, the well-known political blogger, is cutting all ties with traditional media outlets to establish a completely ad-free, reader-supported blog. I read Sullivan regularly and I’m sure I’ll purchase a subscription. The Internet has far too few commercial-free zones of intelligent commentary, so I hope this move by Sullivan will encourage other smart people (Nate Silver, Malcolm Gladwell, and the like) to pursue similar reader-supported projects. Big Media will always be king of the Internet, but we need more of the independent voices that dotted the digital landscape back in early years of the web.
