GLAMs & Open Knolwedge

The team at MHz Curationist has been doing some great market research about sustainability for their project and if/how micropayments fit in. They are looking to talk with other projects in the non-profit space. Is that you?

A great prototype from MozFest

Marc Boas from Hyperaudio continues to dazzle with ideas and prototypes about how video, audio, transcriptions, and accessibility might be coupled with Web Monetization. Here they are taking videos from MozFest and adding WM and transcriptions. Check out the links and the demo!
