Something Positive

Three weeks ago R.K. Milholland got fed up with people criticizing the spelling in his online comic Something Positive so he posted a dare: donate his current day-job salary ($22,000) to his pay-pal account and he’ll quit and work full-time on the comic. The donations flooded in, and yesterday he gave his 2-weeks notice.

Just one more example of how “selling” content isn’t the only economic model out there, or necessarily even the best. All sorts of things become possible when what you produce has practically zero marginal cost.
