Ah, Serendipity…

For a long time I’ve wondered why people didn’t seem to be recording the works of Shakespeare and other works long out of copyright to create a kind of audio Project Gutenberg. Telltale Weekly appears to be heading in that direction, with audio books, short stories, etc.
The funny thing about it was that they were able to price some of the short pieces very low (as low as $0.25 US). Why were they able to price things that low? I mean, transaction costs for credit cards, echecks, or PayPal would eat you alive at that price point. The answer is again, BitPass. This kind of thing is possible because there is a (I think) viable micropayment system available now. Awesome!
