Everything on the Internet is free. News are free. Information is free. Software is free. Distribution is free. Media is free. Some of it not entirely legal, but it’s free nevertheless. So how do bloggers, podcasters, developers and other creators get paid? Increasingly, through voluntary donations. Services like Vodo, Kickstarter and Flattr are helping the new breed of creators get paid by their fans and followers. This presentation looks at successful case studies and best practices for voluntary donations as a source of income for creators.
