Michael Ten Is Me

Michael Ten is a pen name of mine. I consider myself to be an artist, author, futurist, and social entrepreneur.

I have published a few short books. They include Outlaw Psychiatric Slavery: Reasons for Outlawing Civil Commitment and the Insanity Defense, Radical Life Extension: Psychological, Metaphysical, and Political Implications, and Attempt to Utilize Cryonics: Why Utilizing Human Cryopreservation Is Ultimately Desirable. They are available on Amazon.

I want to see aging defeated. The book Ending Aging: The Rejuvenation Breakthroughs That Could Reverse Human Aging in Our Lifetime by Aubrey de Grey and Michael Rae has influenced me significantly.

I want to see psychiatric slavery outlawed. In my education, I was tasked with reading some of the ideas of psychiatrist Thomas Szasz. After my formal education, I read over a dozen of his books. They have influenced me significantly. Some of his books include Psychiatric Slavery and Suicide Prohibition: The Shame of Medicine.

I have valuable ideas to share and spread. I also am interested in current events.

Cheers. Hello.

Social Media Sites/Apps That Share Revenue With Contributors

There should be a social media website and app that share revenue with content contributors. Social media sites should share revenue with users.

Medium, Facebook, and Reddit all overlap. Twitter, Facebook, Quora, Instagram, YouTube, and Reddit all have ads.

YouTube already has a program in place to share revenue with content creators/contributors.

On a new social media website/app, all ads displayed could start by advertising either advertising space on the site/app, or ads to sign up people for the service. Alternatively, users should be able to pay a small fee, and then not see ads. Eventually, there would be self service advertising on the site/app. An app like this should be able to function as replacements for Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, Snapchat, Reddit, and Quora.

A social media company like this should be setup as a benefit corporation. A benefit corporate structure is a blend of for profit and not for profit business models. Perhaps, eighty or ninety percent of net profits could be paid out as a dividend to content contributors.

All profitable social media sites should share revenue with content contributors/creators.

Revenue Sharing on Social Media Websites

Facebook and Twitter need to share revenue with content contributors.

YouTube already shares revenue with some content creators.

Reddit should share revenue with content contributors.

The future of social media will involve revenue sharing where profits exist.

All profitable social media websites should share revenue with content creators/contributors.

Electronic books are a form of social media in certain respects. It is relatively easy to publish a short electronic book or print on demand book these days using Kindle Direct Publishing and Createspace. Revenue sharing is built into multiple self publishing platforms.
