I'm hoping we're going forward to a new kind of patronage - direct public patronage rather than the delegated royal patronage model. When people can easily, directly say "I really like this content creator, I want him or her to keep making new things," and then use their wireless or wearable device to instantly give him or her a little bit of patronage while also signing up to hear more about that person's work later - there's a new patronage model. For web content and software it's already starting to be there. I'd like to see it out in the world, though, for sculpture and music and architecture and other art.

Anne, when you say "public," do you see a role for governments and/or nonprofits in adding to patronage?
