"For the first time, Web Monetization allows users to reward creators on the Web without having to rely on one particular company, currency, or payment platform. Companies such as Coil who are providing access to the Interledger network will have to compete with other access providers the same way that Internet Service Providers (ISPs) have been competing for decades."

Lazy Reading for 2019/09/15

Way eclectic this week.  Enjoy!  I will be working, as I haven't had a day off in 3 weeks - but don't be too sorry for me, I chose this.  The magic of pre-scheduling posts fixes it.

A new version of Ishkur's Guide to Electronic Music - you will find something new and interesting, guaranteed.  (via)
