only issue is, how much will you get paid to just walk around? If we want to 
take an example, see the wages of waiters…without minimum wage floors, its 
impossible to survive. flip side, who will pay for it? the average joe or mango 
man will have very little discretionary funds to spend on stuff like this. even 
micro-payments wouldnt help, you need a bare minimum to get some basics in 
place and the capacity or desire to pay for this has gone. Look at our smart 
phones. besides the phone itself, pretty much all the value add via the apps 
are free. If I look at my app and i look at my interactions, extremely little 
is actually being paid for to the creator. very very little. and that also goes 
to large corporates who can scale up.
