John Gruber makes some excellent points in his meandering article about the independent web publisher vs. the corprate publisher. In the article which John calls Independent Days he hits on the subject of ads for the independent writer. I agree that a writer should not be ashamed of asking for contributions for their material, however I believe John's being pretty optimistic about the amount of income generated through such means. All in all, it's a great article about what sites like Digital Web Magazine are all about, giving back to the community in the spirit of the web. John, if we had money to send and didn't have the up and coming wedding, we'd send it. As always, Keith has some great comments on the article.
