An Open Standard, Crowd-Sourced Micro Capital Scheme For ALL Content Creators: "Penny$haring"
The idea is to have a single button which you can press to donate a penny to anything you like online, whether that be a video, article, website etc. The key is in getting it onto platforms in a standard format that everyone knows and trusts.
"Penny$haring" would mean sharing your penny with the creator and the media with a friend.
Users would have to sign up to "Penny$haring" with Go Cardless, Paypal or Google checkout so that they could participate.
Whilst signing up users would have to connect their "Penny$hare" account to Google+, Youtube, Facebook and Twitter, so that a "Penny$haring" button could turn up on those platforms beside each piece of media, just like a 'share' button.
Crowdsourcing buzz/ public conversations would have to drive a movement of creators and sharers to sign up for Penny$haring, but the reward would be to support and 'vote' for the things they really like and find funny, or cool, or important.
This would add value to media, and to media producers, wherever and whoever they are. All we have to do is get the conversation going, and it can become a possibility!
Please use the discussion board to criticise the idea and defend it: what are the problems? Obvious? Obscure? What are it's benefits?
