Knowledge, Learning, Community

Square is an online payment service. Tidal is a music streaming service. They may seem like polar opposites, but what the combination could do is give artists and independent content producers a way to make money that doesn't depend on centralized services publishers and Patreon and other agencies that take an extra-large percentage. Streaming services don't really pay the bills, as any musician will tell you, but direct payments for concerts, merch, donations, and whatever might fill the gap. Educators - especially those aspiring to offer digital learning services - should watch this new offering closely. Meanwhile - is the world ready for an 'OLDaily' sweatshirt? Or how about one that says 'Free learning?'
