Blair Witch Co-creator uses Bitpass Micropayments

There’s an article on CNN today about one of the co-creators of the Blair Witch project using Bitpass micropayments (www.bitpass.com) to sell his latest movie work. This could be the highest exposure micropayments have got in the mass media, I suspect. Micropayments, if you don’t already know, give browsers the ability to buy content on the web for as little as a penny… making it so content providers (like, say, cartoonists) can sell their content directly to the reader for a modest sum completely bypassing all middlemen. Scott McCloud is a big proponent of them (and was one of the first cartoonists to use it)… if you’re interested you can read a lot more about micropayments in his book Reinventing Comics.
