The Nature of Free (Kodingen is Free!)

Many of us were brought up to be suspicious of “free”.  We live by sayings like, “You get what you pay for”, or “Nothing in this world is free”.  However, the new “free” is Free.

This free seemed to have no strings attached: It wasn’t just a lure for a future sale, but genuinely gratis. Most of us depend on one or more Google services every day, but they never show up on our credit card. No meter ticks as you use Facebook. Wikipedia costs you nothing.

Today’s free is not a loss leader or buy one get one free.  Today free is Free.  Unlimited usage and limitless availability are realities we all enjoy around our access to information.

And yes, Kodingen is free and will stay free.
