Actually, by definition, free lance stringers only get paid if/when they manage to sell something. If they're paid even when not producing, they're employees, not free lance. ;) You might want to ask your local paper what percent of their content comes from free lancers. It may be surprisingly high, especially for smaller newspapers. You don't want to go there, or I'll be forced to ask what percent of the IETF gets paid specifically for doing it (as opposed to doing it on a volunteer basis, or managing to do it on company time only because you're both writing the RFC and developing the product at the same time). Does the lack of pay there mean the RFC is worthless? "Paid money" is a very skewed metric of actual value in today's society, as anybody who's looked at sports star salaries can tell you.
