Image tagging incentives

Reading about Stipple today.

When we first covered Stipple in September of last year, it seemed like a really cool idea: tag people in images no matter where they reside on the web — not just on Flickr or Facebook.

Is it just me or do you think they need to offer better inccentives for people to tag? The current proposal is missing a component/piece.

My suggestion is a big incentive pie for taggers eg first gets 10% of all sales, 2nd/3rd round confirmation (amazon turk style) gets 5% a piece etc - then fingers crossed and hope to hell your reputation for payments runs strong.

What do you think?



  1. I wonder if people will tag things, or if a computer will automatically "try" to.

  2. Yep, i can imagine a whole sideline (like the Netflix challenge) for non related end users/developers creating better tagging codes if they opened up their pipeline.
