Anil Dash wants Flickr to Pay users!

I say bravo! This is a great idea and goes along with this thought process I have been having for a long time in podcasting that Podcasters do the work, Podcasters get paid. This is the model we are going to use at Podcaster News Network ( Podcasters create the content and then we share a large portion of the advertising dollars we bring in. We host the content and take care of the infrastructure so the podcasters can focus on content. We do the ground work to bring in the advertisers.

Will it be a challenge sure everything is a challenge. But when your getting ready to launch the worlds first dedicated Podcasting News Network that will cover news, entertainment, politics, religion, business in a Paul Harvey and Short story format I cannot imagine anything that will be more cool.

So yes Flickr should pay those that contribute to the eco system. After all setting up a web based photo sharing site is pretty easy these days and you can put your own ads on the site. [Anil Dash]
