Voodoo economics

Disenchanted has some theories about why all the current "usability gurus" (like Jakob Nielsen) are wrong in this article:
Voodoo e-conomics -- "Micropayments are a magical holy grail to many who're eager to make money from intellectual property, be it magazine articles, songs, recipes or artwork. The day when it becomes possible to charge two cents to read a single op/ed column is considered, by some, to be the coming of the Singularity; the Epoch; a cornerstone of commerce and civilization. A fairy will wave her magic wand and the creative artists and writers will all get rich from a shallow but awesomely wide river of money that will flow out of the audience's pockets and into bank accounts like it was taken for granted."
