As a direct result of the fact that I seriously love getting paid for doing the things I enjoy, combined with my newfound entrepreneurial spirit and understanding of the power of the internet. I would like to propose that this site enact a payment plan to reward its active members by giving them a cut of the advertising money they've helped to generate for the owners of Big Think(tm). Since this site would not be possible without us, I feel that users should be entitled to a cut of the earnings. A great deal of these earnings are generated due to End User Generated Content, I.E. posted ideas and responses as well as hype surrounding them.
This is the new way of the internet. Support this idea and make every visitor and active member ecstatic!
