hello mr. scott cloud,

first let me thank you for your two books. it has inspired me to become self-sufficient and am trying hard to writing programs (i'm a programmer!) for a living.

i welcome your idea for micropayments. but i request you to campaign for its internationlisation. 25 cents per comic may be ok for the US, but it is still expensive for countries like india where internet penetration is growing fast but people are not affluent.

25 units of local currency would be cool. in US, people would pay 25 cents, in india it would be 25 paise. if the artist is in the US, the conversion from 25 paise would be pathetic but it is still something.

one of the reasons for piracy is rampant in the far-east is that the price of digital content (software, music) is decided according to the buying power of an american or eruopean. when these programs appear in poor countries, they are converted into local currency and sold. its impossible therefore for local people to buy it and give in to piracy.

please campaign for internationalisation for micropayments.

thanks,
jagan.
