The Culture Currency

Micro-pay for web contents with Flattr

The problem: as an artist (real or wanna be), you do not want to make you audience pay anything, but a bit of support (meaning, money) wouldn’t hurt and help you develop new projects. On the other side you’d like to help bloggers, musicians, video makers – in one word, web contents creators – but don’t exactly know how.

The solution: the monthly contribution you set up on Flattr is given to all the creators you like. All your clicks on an embedded button defining what part of your gift each of the authors gets (call it a Spotify model without the fat major record companies).

Why we talk about it: already featured as #14 best idea of 2011 by Wired (UK), and praised by many others, they probably don’t need more attention. But the fact their model is beautiful and slowly expanding, and that they’re Europeans where enough for us.

The idea of setting up a contribution and sharing it between all your clicks is just brilliant.
In that kind of business (supporting “cultures”), being painless is key!

For a few bucks a month, will content creators make the effort to install it? At least, they should try it, for sure!
