Themestream seems to be trying to become a portal site where people post articles on things of interest to them, not too far unlike Everything, save that it is aimed toward longer articles and does not try to be encyclopedic in scope. However, Themestream actually pays its authors for page hits...ten cents per hit at present.

Perhaps those who enjoy writing would also enjoy being paid for it?

Addendum, several months later: And the joke is on me, of course; Themestream burned through its venture capital like a roman candle, and fizzled without paying me the last few hundred bucks that it owed me. Still, I made some money out of the thing that I wouldn't have otherwise gotten, so it's not all bad, eh?

Also, the name of this website seems to be a pun. Theme Stream is immediately obvious.

But I think the Me Stream is more accurate. I have noticed that certain well-known authors use it as a place to make money posting ramblings that would not be published anywhere else. I suppose this is a good way for them to make money on this stuff. Just my observation.
