+ - Web 3.0 = Paying For User Content?

Submitted by Alan
Alan (666) writes "Web 2.0 is all about social networking sites, wikis, and tools that emphasize online collaboration. But if Web 2.0 is the introduction of user-centric services, what's Web 3.0 going to look like? My guess is paying for user-contributions.

Think about it. YouTube is going to pay users for submitting content. Even an independent website like FiringSquad.com is running a contest offering US$10,000 for the best blogger in their 'Matrix'. Shouldn't MySpace pay users for putting up their pages?"

Most public domain software is free, at least at first glance.
