Not sure

But see also Netflix for movies, and I'm guessing iTunes also does
this for music (I don't use it).

On the general concept, this is the realm of Crowdsourcing. Lots of

I've found it interesting that the various transhuman lists haven't
been hotter on the various crowdsourcing developments. To my mind,
it's a really interesting alternative style of bottom-up organisation
to the traditional market. There is the possibility here of a way of
fulfilling the extropian principles, for instance, without market
capitalism being front and center.
