It doesn't have to be a $0.00 proposition. You can expose a Web Service 
and be compensated too. As I am sure you know already, business models 
are generally dysfunctional on the Web due to the following issues that 
permeate a majority of Web Services:    (02)

1. Identity incomprehension
2. Data incomprehension
3. Logic incomprehension.    (03)

Due to the issues outlined above, there is a general misconception that 
business models on the Web ultimately boil down to obtrusive advertising 
and utter annihilation of end-user privacy.    (04)

I am happy to discuss (on or offline) a mechanism for making your 
valuable service available on the Web for  > $0.00 ++  :-)    (05)
