Journal hessian's Journal: AdSense for shilling

I hear a lot on /. about how many users are Apple Zealots or Microsoft Shills.

My question is simple: how do I monetize this?

That is, if I decide to be a shill, how do I get paid? Can I get an AdSense tag for my .sig file?

Or is there another way to sell this labor?

I'll gladly shill for products, or even countries, for money. Everyone else seems to be doing this, directly (get paid) or indirectly (loyalty, a buddy, employment, etc).

I guess I'd like it to not conflict with my loyalties. For example, if I'm an Apple shill and the latest Macintosh ends up being a silver-plated 0.5" turd, then I've got to find some euphemism to use. "The new Macbook XXXXL is... uh... a different kind of computing experience."

But it seems to me this is the future of our society. Advertising on everything; everyone a shill for something. I just want to be able to sock that shill money in my kids' college account.
