to Tip in real life =
to Flattr on WWW
WWW is so vast, that even far less than pocket change - can make a difference.
WWW is also the place where anyone, having a great idea, can & do make great things - with very little capital.But
... Creators & Providers does tend to loose interest when implementations of their great ideas only see attention & use, but no tips.
And when Creators & Providers loose interest, then you & I get deprived of the great tools - which we often use, possibly without thought about origins.
Throwing a tiny coin out of pocket change, in the real/physical world - is extremely easy.
It sometimes is too in the electronically connected world - just think about your phone: You make a 20 second phone call, and the administrative burden of payment, is virtually zero!
Why(?) Because you have a relation (possible a contract) with a business enity, commonly know as a phone company.
And you have that, because you expect to keep having a need for making phone calls in the future too.Well
- Do you intend to keep browing & using the Internet, as you intend to keep calling & talking using the phone?
