Comments: Why Newspapers Are Dying, and Why Not

Create a centralized online micropayment authority that newspapers can integrate with. All articles cost a nominal amount to read, say 10 cents, or some other amount set by the content provider. Readers create accounts with the payment authority (not the content provider, as is the current trend) and preload their account with cash, say $50 at a time (like an EZ-Pass account for news). Using a browser add-on or a simple web authorization workflow (e.g. oAuth) the user can quickly and painlessly authorize a payment to a content provider as he reads.

Ultimately, anyone who publishes content online (e.g. bloggers, musicians, photographers) could tap into the system and charge for their content.

Would go a long way to helping authors receive the remuneration they deserve.
