Settling the debate over Arianna Huffington. Just click it.

A hot issue for freelance writers who wish to market their talent. Arianna Huffington, who founded Huffington Post and now directs AOL's editorial programs, defends her no-pay policy at HuffPo as providing a platform for exposure for writers, and she certainly is proof that exposure establishes a valuable brand. The Newspaper Guild has called for a boycott by its 26,000 members. My solution: Ariana owns the ad revenue for eyeballs and writers get $1 for each clicked "like" button. Okay, 50 cents. Deal?
