Some thoughts on Flattr and other social payment services

flattr - A social payment service

Welcome to my blog! If you like it or me, give money to me by pressing the nice flattr button at the side bar.

Hello?! … are you still there??

Great! Some months ago I read some news about these Piratebay guys that ruined with their BitTorrent tracker the whole movie and record industries. This time these news have not been about the next industry they are about to take down, but about that they seriously thought on how money could be transferred from the consumers to the producers in this cursed “all-for-free”-Internet. The result was a new service that is called Flattr and currently still is in beta phase. Kachingle is by the way another service of this kind, based in the United States while Flattr is – as Piratebay – of Swedish origin.
