Aren't there quite some university coders that produce open source code and
get paid up front?

I don't really know what the OP is talking about, but something like a
stock exchange for open source (not necessarily GPL or free) code
copyrights could be interesting. A different model. And up front payment is
not excluded in such a model (given a track record, of course, or at least
some solid hype :). I haven't thought this through at all, just got a kick
out of the "information currency" keyword :)
