In the discussion of IT Conversations’ business models, a few folks have expressed the sentiment that they “don’t like tip jars” and would prefer having a subscription mechanism. I’ll admit to not understanding that at all. They would be happier if they were forced to pay before they listen, and that lack of force bothers them? I can’t say I’m on board that train. How does tipping if you like and not if you don’t feel like it diminish anyone’s experience?
Kind of related, Eric Rice dropped $500 of the money he is making as a Marqui blogger in the ITC tip jar. Good god! Thanks Eric, for laundering the Marqui money to Doug!
