Walking off with your money....

Well this is a new one. A company focusing on disruptive technology has put forth a currency that is earned by time spent walking.

 

It does offer a potential for authors and creatives in general. Rather than something given away for free to try and boost profile, attaching it to something of value might work better.

 

People have readers jammed with free stuff they've downloaded and because there's no value attached, feel little attachment to them. But, if they've had to, "earn," that material, it is more likely to be read. If it is attached to increasing the populations health, then so much the better. Heck, it beats just putting something out as free.

 

This could actually go somewhere. I'm going to be watching this with interest.
