The Order of Payment And Consumption Drives Content
Paying whether you like it or not leads to lousy quality. Asking for donations doesn't work. We should have automatic pay-up-front systems with easy refunds (for if you don't like it) and perhaps adjustments to the amount paid.

Ian Bicking: a blog :: Javascript on the server AND the client is not a big deal

Ian Bicking: a blog :: Cultural Imperialism, Technology, and OLPC
The OLPC (One Laptop Per Child) project has been accused of cultural imperialism: being the modern version of missionaries. In this defense, Ian argues that it's the people who are choosing what culture to adhere to, and it's their right to do so. Often the foreign culture is BETTER. OLPC attempts to make it possible for people to choose.
