basic income for debian developers


since Steffen Moeller started a thread about paying Debian Developers, I got 
the idea to ask the Debian community about it's opinion about "Guaranteed 
minimum income"[1].
I've heard about the concept some weeks ago in a talk by Götz Werner[2] and 
imediatly felt in love with the idea. I'll give a lightning talk about it in 
two weeks at Google Zürich's Open Source Jam and intend to propose a talk 
about it at next years FOSDEM[3].

The connection between Free Software and basic income are obvious IMHO: It's 
hard to earn money with things you give away for free. Basic income gives you 
the freedom to work on things you like without the need to earn your income 
from this work.

If this topic is not appropriate for this list, I beg your paddon. 
Nevertheless I'd be glad to hear more opinions on this topic.
