A Penny to You – Your Word to the World

I have now registered a domain name for what I have been calling the the ‘penny per post’ project, i.e. 1p2U.com.

Short and sweet. Does what it says on the tin.

Scott Carpenter said 3495 days ago :

Depending on how this is implemented, I’d be interested in trying it out. (And would be happy to offer feedback to help shape that implementation.) :-)

My blog readership is small, but some of them may be interested in experimenting with something like this. (And that’s how I’d likely promote it, initially: an experiment in compensating free culture producers.)

Scott Carpenter said 3495 days ago :

Looks like pennyperpost.com is available also…

Crosbie Fitch said 3495 days ago :

That’s great Scott. I look forward to the day when it’s ready to try out. All feedback gratefully received whether sooner or later.

However, there’s a long way to go before the widget is even created let alone ready to try. So far, there’s just my pair of hands and they aren’t exactly fast by any means.

But, yes, as you recognise, this is all progress toward enabling producers of free culture to be rewarded.

Making the production of digital art rewarding…

Crosbie Fitch said 3495 days ago :

If anyone wants to register pennyperpost.com and create a parallel or similar project they have my full encouragement.

All the source code and website content residing on 1p2u.com will be continuously available (free). Naturally, private information concerning its users (bloggers and readers) will not be published unless the persons concerned consent.

The whole point of 1p2U.com is to provide a demo and encourage people to create variations on this theme of free culture patronage.

The sooner the idea of funding free culture via public patronage gains credibility, the sooner we’ll all be enjoying cultural freedom in the digital domain.
