Retribute, first blog post, proofreading
Tonight, I've been writing a non-technical blog post about #Retribute.
Hopefully, it will shed some light on the project: how it works, why it works that way, what comes next…
If you are fluent in English or interested in the matter, would you mind proofreading it?
I'm sure there are some typos, syntax and grammar mistakes, and the copy itself could be improved!

If you want to learn more about #Retribute, I recommend you read this blog post I published this morning about the problems the project aims to solve and how.
It's non-technical and focuses on the bigger picture, more technical writings will come afterwards.
@eliotberriot This is a really really good idea! But how does this differ from Flattr which have a similar goal. How can Redistribute become better? What are the issues Flattr have that Redistribute will not?
@shellkr it is strongly limited by its centralized nature, though, and by its lack of compatibility with what existed before it.
On the other hand, Retribute isn't a payment system, but a financing system. It doesn't enforce a specific payment platform, but is designed to work with existing ones, including flattr.
As a creator or contributor, if you're using Flattr, you can benefit from Retribute. You don't need to choose.
Yes, that is a good distinguisher and something I feel is very important to point out.
