The blog Techdirt notes the little-remarked upon sale of micropayments company Peppercoin. It certainly wasn't a lack of investment that caused the last big burst of micro-payment companies to fail but given the seemingly short-term memory of VCs and other investors, I wonder how long it will be until micro-payments are "hot" again?

UPDATE: Joey Manley also commented on the end of Peppercoin which he notes launched at the same time as another no-longer-with-us micropayments company Bitpass.
