alternative to micropayments?

you know, if it was clearly announced, secure, and reasonably throttled, why not let mining happen to support a site you like? it's not like I am a good advertising target.

beats paying $60/year or the like for Washington Post. I already have a sub to one news mag, don't need another.

of course, not sure my criteria above would be met.

one thing the old French Minitel got right was a secure, low-friction, if very very pricey, way for publishers to make money.
