Tim has written up the idea we
discussed after dinner on Saturday: Pay
Granted, this is not a new idea. But the more we talked
about it, the more I realized that it's really not rocket surgery.
The trick is getting a few decent sized organizations (Hotmail, AOL,
Yahoo, Earthlink) to start recognizing the service.
It may not work. The economics could be all off. But hell, it
seems like it's worth a shot to me.
Now, how do we get started...?
Update: It's worth pointing out that I know this idea isn't perfect. Viruses that send e-mail via Outlook would end up costing you money. And spammers may resort to stealing credit cards.
Update #2: If you're the type that takes this stuff way too seriously, please stop.
