Heard about Flattr.com?
When I say I wonder if it will be the next Facebook, I don't mean another evil empire imperiling your personal secuity and information, but I mean another "something big".
They've found a way that seems to be workable for you to give small amounts to people and organizations you come across on the web. Costs Euros 15 to give it a try. Easiest sign up I ever encountered. Seems "safe", seems to have a bit of a track record. (Thank you trends.google.com)
For a review from a new-to-Flattr, old-to-computers person... me... go to...http://sheepdogsoftware.co.uk/donateflattr.htm
Why posted here? Ever want to send thank$ in a u$eful form to some of the people who regularly answer questions at this forum? Are you minimally tech-capable? Flattr might be for you!
(I am also dying to see what an incoming Flattr looks like... yes, there is a button on my page (
) and all Flattr payouts happen on the last day of the calendar month... Part of the Cunning in their Little Plan, Baldrick, is that they have essentially re-invented the "clearing" mechanism used by the world's banks to make checks workable.... but this time on a micro-scale. Micro-finance... Accion.com and others... re-invented lending, and earned its "father" a Nobel prize. Flattr may have re-invented the check (cheque) system, to establish a system for micro-gifts.)
