there's so much space in this game - if they were off setting their costs by subscription someone else would be whining.
I think we should all be thinking of interesting ways to get micro-payments to work. because I wouldn't put adds on my personal videblog, but I wanted be above accepting someones "content points" or something for a job well done.
I look forward to seeing how this develops.

David, I urge you to read the terms of the auction:
Rocketboom is not only selling advertising time on their videoblog,
they are making the ads themselves, placing them at the end of their
show and making them in such a way that their viewers will actually
enjoy the ad.
Why do so many people here think this is such a horrible thing? They
are being creative and taking their audience into consideration all at
the same time. Besides, it's not the first time they've aired
advertisements on their show... they've been doing that for a long
time (my favorite was the Flickr ad).
Lighten up people.
