About Nate Hoffelder (10619 Articles)
Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. Whatever The Atlantic is using is pretty effective at blocking Adblockers, I hope they get more subscriptions out of it.

  2. The Atlantic is way over the top in their use of ads and trackers. They have ads, pop ups, videos. It’s just too much. It’s in bad taste, it is inappropriate. If they think they will receive either subs or more white listing by this change they are sadly mistaken. All they’ve done is created friction, making it harder to get views. That will result in less and not more ad revenue.
