Flattr: Put your money where your mouth is

Written by maloki on June 3rd, 2010

Some of you might have noticed that I’ve become quite interested in the whole Flattr project. It’s even gone so far for me to call myself Flattr Whore on their forum. No I’m not obsessed, I promiss!

You might wonder, how does this relate to Pirate Party politics? I’ll make it short because in a way it doesn’t and in a way it does. It doesn’t relate to the politics per say since it’s about money, but it relates to the ideology of Sharing is Caring. For that reason I want to support this.

The side fact that Flattr has consists of an amazingly nice and helpful team, and volounteers, especially on the forum side, just makes it so much better.
I guess that somewhere I’ve gotten stuck in volounteer work. I like doing stuff that I feel gives me something in return. Being active on the flattr forum, trying out the plugins on this blog, I updated everything lastnight.

Since I like the philosophy I’ve gotten quite intense. It’s started alot of thoughts around Flattr [swe] and how you can use it. I also wrote some thoughts about Flattr and social pressure that noone should stand out (swe)
Today I’ve posted 2 suggestions and 1 request on the forum.
Suggestions were Premium Invites, give an invite with money on it already. Co-op accounts/groups, basicly to be able to attatch more accounts to an account.
And after having been flooded with flattrs (unfortunately I found it unflattring, I’m sorry!) I also suggested, rather Requested: “Newest” – Collapse multiple things from same user

A few days ago I suggested:
Add/vote for tags, Lists – Integration and Bulk Edit Things which quicky got response from the Staff.

Flattr will be the revolutionary way that we can give creators the extra appriciation we want to give them. We can finally put our money where our mouth is! If you havn’t seen Peter Sunde at Re:publica yet, please do. Oh, and while you’re there you might want to follow their blog.

Please, tell me about 3 people/projects you would like to be able to flattr, but they don’t have an active account yet, and non the less tell them that you would like to flattr them, and offer an invite!

(don’t miss that when you comment you can add your flattr ID! edit: now it should work, lol. plugins updated again!)

    Jag gjorde precis det där igår, och gav en flattr-invite till en person så att jag skulle kunna flattra. Får se när han fixar in det på sin blogg.
