In my Scribd.com posting, I quote Alexander Hamilton:
"Everybody, almost, can and will be willing to hazard a trifling sum for the chance of a considerable gain."
With internet access becoming ubiquitous, people who have the time to sit around can do literal keystrokes of work that are themselves a "trifling sum" for the chance of a [Lotto magnitude] "considerable gain."
In the Scribd paper, I describe how typists -- players -- need not be committed to working a set number of hours or keystrokes, or even start at the beginning of the document to be typed. Everyone -- anyone -- with web access can log on, submit a bitcoin address, do some typing -- really any amount of typing -- and earn the chance to win a payout funded by whomever needs the typing done. People on break at the office for a few seconds or minutes; on the subway; on the plane; in the airport; in the den; on the couch; in the company lounge; in the gym; in the lobby waiting for a job interview -- anywhere or everywhere you would just log on and do some typing. You follow copy as closely as you can because you know that only validated -- replicated -- keystrokes have a chance of winning. Beavis and Butthead inputting random keystrokes would just be wasting their time because those random keystrokes will not be replicated. Finally even they get the message: just follow copy and they might win.
So the need for word processing and even translations can be outsourced and proofreading eliminated. Closer deadlines with higher mandated levels of replication would require higher payouts, or perhaps smaller payouts would be pooled into many such smaller payouts to make one bigger one. Lotteries could be worldwide, like Powerball-level games.
The really good thing here is that sedentary people who buy their Lotto tickets at the liquor store could instead earn their tickets without paying cash for them. Just do a few keystrokes anywhere you are. People who do not gamble might even be tempted, but now the form of gambling that is tempting them is fundamentally virtuous. They do productive work rather than pay cash. What could be wrong with that? Especially since no matter how much typing you actually do, you will only rarely win even trifling payouts -- exactly like conventional lotteries, except for them you pay cash.
Anyone who has become disenchanted with keystroke lotteries would be unlikely to resume paying cash for the same chance to win. That would be a good thing too.
