Wow...this is NOT a new idea... This idea has been used for our ENTIRE lifetimes to produce some of the highest quality educational, news and entertainment content. 

ITS CALLED PUBLIC BROADCASTING. The largest source of funding for Public Television, and National Public Radio are its viewers and listeners. When you pledge, you get cool stuff.

Valid point. John actually used this exact comparison just before his paternity leave, talking about how he supports his NPR affiliate (is that the correct term?) because he wants to, not because he has to...

I think the "new" part of the idea is bringing this into the online realm. As has been said elsewhere in the conversation about Subbable (and Patreon), this idea has not really been firmly established online yet (even 1¼ on).

This is also a bit of a weird concept to me. Not in the sense that the model doesn't make sense. It's just that local broadcasting doesn't exist in the same funded-by-consumers sense here in the UK (or at least, not directly - the television licence fee does this indirectly, but it's a mandatory payment, not an additional contribution).
