A while back, I moved my 2002 essay on tipjar payments for artists to sourceforge, as part of a project (called indiemuse) that would build tools for such a payment infrastructure. Eh….indiemuse never went anywhere, I don’t even think I own the domain anymore (still a good idea, though!), and eventually, my project was culled by sourceforge. Ick!
So I just realized a few weeks back (while reviewing my 404 reports from this site) that my tipjar essay link at my rants page was dead. All hail version control…I pulled out the copy that went to sourceforge, updated it a tiny bit (fixed email address and formatting), and put it up here. Enjoy.
