Submission + - Web 3.0 = Paying For User Content?

Alan 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?
