During the election, Joshua Micah Marshall and Daily Kos were able to
travel around and cover the democratic primaries mostly due to
donations from their blogs.
Also, rel="payment" does not have to be a *pay me* link. It could
point to anyplace where you could buy something. For instance, I may
review a product and then include a rel="payment" link that points to
where that product can be purchased (perhaps with an affilliate
program so i make a little money on the click-through).
I don't think rel="payment" will make us all millionaires, but its a
good idea to build in some kind of foundation that lets you accept
money when people are willing to give it.
I also think this would be particularly suitable to political
campaigns (hit the bat, anyone?).
