@adam there was a book about 10 years ago that told about how original plans in the 70's for the internet had it being value for value in micropayments to content creators. an interesting read since you are are very like minded to the author's views about monetization of the internet. https://www.amazon.com/You-Are-Not-Gadget-Manifesto/dp/0307389979
I was certainly pretty priviliged by all the attention it got - But I think all Podcasting 2.0 apps probably saw an increase around then, since there was a lot of chatter in general around value4value and the namespace! :)
@adam Fact check false! Due to an issue I've identified (and am publishing in a peer-reviewed journal) about podcastindex actually receiving up to 10% of some of the podcast stream donations right now. So extrapolating from that 1% is not true right now. Once the issue is resolved then the graph will be closer true. - an independent fact-checker!
