> I really wish there was a decent, widely supported micropayment system for journalism.

The audience for news isn't as big as I think lots of people wish it were. For the micropayment system to work, I bet the payments wouldn't be very micro.

Then a lot of news can go away, which is fine. As ad-blocking becomes more popular, this'll happen anyway.
