The tipping point

My sense is that the world economy will eventually be all about tipping. I've thought about this increasingly lately, and not just in the context of a world free of intellectual monopoly. Tipping accurately across the planet would foster free labor.

Today I discovered tipjoy. I look forward to finding out more about their approach and their ultimate vision on addressing the problem of micropayments. Having had great hopes in several micropayment systems from 1997 to 1999, I continue to hope, and I wish them success.
