The Case against Advertisement

Triggers Consume and Waste

Attention Sink


= Hate advertisement =

  • Steels attention
  • Advertisement tax: with nearly everything you buy, you also pay for advertisement

In 2014 German companies paid 41 billion (41e9) Euros for advertisement, that’s approx. 525€ per person per year, or ~3% of an average’s person net income.

= FlattrPlus =

  • how is the money distributed
  • will only sites without any ads be flattred?
  • how much does Flattr/AdblockPlus take (10% as Flattr seems to be quite a lot)?
  • will you track me, or will my browser just upload which side I want to pay how much?
  • why is there an annoying auto-playing video on flattrplus?
