jpegmag …. I think they might have done it. They might have found a business model that sustains User Generated Content.
Finding a business model that can sustain User Generated Content (UGC) , I reckon is the holly grail of WEB 2. Its what You Tube couldn’t work out how to do….
So jpegmag have a model where, basically, you submit a photo and if people vote for it, it gets included in their magazine, you get some exposure and some cash.
Now how could this be done with music? Its more difficult with music because people dont need to ‘buy’ something to get a better quality version. Or maybe that could work?…hmmm … I’m going to think about this one.
