I think this thread is just a mind exercise, not necessarily a serious one. But what called my attention was the fast critic response.
- If this blog is the first to ask for a donation.
- If there is an article that recommends Agloco which in turn promotes that what gives value to a blog or site (such as youtube.com, facebook.com, ...) is precisely their audience and contributors.
- Maybe if one respected group, as the one that runs this blog/forum, is capable of doing so much good; and observing some posts that talk about creativity, imagine how much can the aggregated contribution of many readers can do.
Has anyone read "The Tipping Point"?
Why Google paid so much for YT if the already had Google Video? Because of the community.
Some times you contribute more because you raised a big community. But that not *necessarily* is proportional or in direct relation to what you are contributing. It may be that it tipped. Harry Potter novel may have contributed to the world, but not necessarily N times more than some other books (research papers, Nobel Price winners or 2nd places, successful blogs, written masterpieces, ...), they just happened to reach the tipping point.
