When I view yours, I pay the same. at some point some equity arises but the main point was that valuable (viewed/used) content would be rewarded with increased payment. This was part of Project Xanadu, well before the WWW was a twinkle in Tim's eyes. cheers Adrian Miles ................................................................. hypertext.rmit || hypertext.rmit.edu.au/adrian interactive networked video || hypertext.rmit.edu.au/vog research blog || hypertext.rmit.edu.au/vog/vlog/
