So I've heard the fact ello is funded off venture capital means it's already sold out its users. As someone who has done the start up thing, I certainly can see that aspect of the argument, but there are ways they could monetize this service without ads. So, if they ever got this running right, who here would pay to use ello? As someone who has seen that the only constant I could have online is the website I pay for, maybe it's time for services to cost at least a little something. Though, considering how cheap hosting is, it better be very little.
