Flattr is a microdonation system. Users are able to pay a small amount every month and then click Flattr buttons on sites to share out the money they paid in among those sites, kind of like an Internet tip jar. (Paraphrased from Wikipedia) Could be that it's currently more of a European thing... :-)

Wil, I think it is easier to get on iTunes in DRM-free plus format than you think! I believe there are web labels that will handle most of it for you. E.g. there's a young french guitar player who goes by the name of "MattRach": he posted videos on YouTube and now has his tracks DRM-free on iTunes - world wide, if I'm not mistaken. I'm sure something similar should work for you as well.

I always wished that you would do some web-video-series akin to what Felicia Day is doing with "The Guild", perhaps together with some of the ACME folks. But of course, the risk that this could be a huge waste of time and energy is there. Personally. I'd think it's a small risk ;-) -- but it's a risk none the less.

Have you ever thought of publishing something under a pseudonym? It might be easier to get objective feedback that way, and you even could start writing Star Trek or Star Wars fan fiction, without being attacked.

Yay, another episode of RFB! I've honestly missed that! Using iTunes 7 on WinXP, links and images just worked fine, although only if you downloaded it completely first; open as URL didn't work for me. As for CC music, here's a Bond-like song (more like an end-title song, less lounge-like): http://ccmixter.org/people/phusion/phusion_-_ophelias_symphony.mp3

What a great speech. What a generous gesture. That was a much better read than I was expecting: well done, Wil!

Wil, here's a question for you: if you're reading to escape this world, are you writing to escape this world as well? If no, why not? As for going offline: yes, I look forward to sit in my garden and read a book in summer; it's a sure way that my cats will join me as well, which doubles the joy. :-)

Since I got my Wii, it wasn't really hard to get my wife to play video games any more. She now evens grabs the controls from my hands, telling me something like "oh let me finish this for you." Get "Rayman Raving Rabbids", it might be a good starting title to go along with Wii Sports. After that, I don't see any more problems with The Wife... ;-)
