Flattr - new way to pay and get paid online

Peter Sunde (the co-founder of The Pirate Bay) and Linus Olsson just created a new micro-payment service called Flattr. The word is a combination of "flatter" and "flat-rate" and the idea is that creators can place flattr-buttons along their content and the viewers can click them if they like the content. The users pay a monthly fee and in the end of the month their money will be divided among the creators they've flattr'ed.

This video explains it pretty good:

The project is still in beta but you can request an invite.
