edgeio is a company I hadn't heard of before, but this post about them on Mashable.com got my attention. In a nutshell, edgeio is offering a widget that anyone can use to monetize their content. The content can be straight text, downloadable files or streaming media. The beauty is that you can leverage all the blogs and other websites that feature your widget. What's in it for those bloggers and website owners? The edgeio widget includes an affiliate program so that bloggers and website owners can share in the revenue generated by the widget. You'll find more details in this edgeio blog post. Very cool.
