Scott McCloud and Clay Shirky are trading ideas on Micropayemnts again.
Clay Says user-pays schemes can't simply be restored through minor tinkering with payment systems, because they don't address the cause of that change -- a huge increase the power and reach of the individual creator..
Scott Says micropayments, well, BitPass are here to stay this time. As a content producer I like the idea, but as a content consumer I'm just not sure yet. If mefi went Micro, would you pay?
