Hrmm.. brainstorming... might be neat if people could 'buy in' to some
product, at a set price, and depending on the quantity sold, get
refunds?  That way they would have an incentive to get their friends
to pay money for it...  Hrmm.. does this begin to approach a pyramid
scheme?  I guess not, if, based on sales at a certain point, people
get equal refunds...  Offhand, I kind of like this one, but I haven't
thought about it much...
