I haven’t given myself a ‘project’ recently, but two things happened in succession this morning to give me an idea. First, I watched Richard Herring’s Christ on a Bike. It’s a good atheist rant, but at the end, he suggests that the good stuff about Jesus really is good stuff, and we could all be a little nicer to each to other.
So there was that. Then my Facebook feed had one of those clickbait headlines “Words cannot describe what this man does”. Turns out that words *can* describe it perfectly adequately, once you click through to the advert laden website in question. Recently, a lot of sites are repackaging someone else’s content, giving it a sensational headline, and then sitting back watching their ad revenue roll in.
So, I wondered what it would be like to create a clickbait site which simply gave away any money it made!
So that’s my next project for a few week…I called it altruistclick.net. I know, it’s a mouthful, but it was available.
