Interestingly, there is another angle. There is a big difference between going to the pub for a few pints with your friends and taking a client there. Heretofore, introducing a customer into something you enjoy, altered the experience.
I think the internet has changed that. The client is a ghost compared to traditional models. Easier to keep at arms length and, therefore, easier to introduce into your passion. However, that may also be why is pays less. No pain (with a client), no gain, in a way, I suppose.
It will be very interesting to see where this goes. Google is banking on a big sea change!

however, in the past I worked for the BBC or newspapers they paid me for my work and they interfaced with the consumers of the copy
google just takes it because it owns the means of distribution
I am not complaining - just explaining
the world is the way it is
