Pardon this brief commercial interruption and 3K post celebration
So what’s with this Kachingle thingee? Well, that’s our ticket to vast wealth, of course! The idea is for all 1.7 billion Internet users to become Kachingle members, pledge $5 a month and spread that money around their favorite Web sites, including this one. It’s an online “tip jar.” Kachingle actually is a serious effort to monetize Web sites, especially newspapers, that have been giving away content for free. Thankfully, my co-webmaster Dave Clingan and I don’t have to support hundreds of staffers and dozens of bureaus around the world. But we’d like to test Kachingle as a “micropayment” revenue source. So when we get filthy rich, we’ll hire all of you for bureaus worldwide! Or maybe we’ll just take our wives to dinner. In any case, check out unbiased accounts of Kachingle. And I’m celebrating a major milestone: 3,000 entries on this blog since January 2003. (The 3,000th dealt with a 3000-meter record.) Whew! Thanks for your continued loyalty!
