Day one of the "Tip Jar" experiment was exciting. 4 of the 5 projects got accepted and the last person is interested but wanted some time to think about what the project might be. It was also very exciting to see how positive a reaction the experiment got from everyone.
I noticed a bunch of people had ideas for what videos / projects they would like to see completed. I was talking to a few people here and we thought we'd try a different angle on the "Tip Jar" called the "Tip Jar Bounty". To kick the experiment off I'm going to create a posting for each of the projects that were suggested yesterday and assign a bounty to it. Anyone can claim the bounty by responding to the post and I'll change it from "unclaimed" to "Claimed by @awesomepersonsname". When you complete the bounty then you will get the funds in the "Tip Jar".
If nobody wants to complete the bounty then it just goes away.
If people like it we can continue and if they don't like it then we can kill the idea. Hopefully it will be fun to try.
