I got a mail this morning, with a registration code for a closed beta, to something called… Flattr.
I was very close, to throwing it in the spam bin – luckily my brain connected the name to something before I did that, and I took a closer look. Flattr is a “social micropayment platform”. Meh, well, everything bloody social, but anyway, it’s supposed to work like this:
1. If you have something of value on the net, you put a “flattr” button in it.
2. If somebody read/watch your content and like it they will click that button.
3. At the end of the month you’ll get a share of that person’s Flattr money for that month.
