What is blogging all about? Is it about sharing one’s daily life and/or thoughts with the rest of the world? Is it then an autobiography of sorts? Can a blog be deemed as literature? Suman Rehman, who labels himself as an ‘uploader’ rather than a true blue blogger, sets the tone for a discussion in the Bangla blogosphere. Global Voices picked up the story.

I told ya so! My post on Ethical Blogging = Blog Brawl! I still say "it's a blog, not a popularity contest!" Now read this: Technorati is a poor source of blog ranking data …

Here's a great post from The Reasoner: Question: Do you prefer reading A-list blogs over non-A-list blogs?

JK Rowling gives a bit more closure to all the closure she provided in Potter #7. Lots of spoilers! This story reveals some key plot points in the final Harry Potter book. So if you've haven't finished the book, J.K. Rowling asks that you not click on the link above.

Was Pat Tillman murdered?

"The medical evidence did not match up with the, with the scenario as described," a doctor who examined Tillman's body after he was killed on the battlefield in Afghanistan in 2004 told investigators.

The doctors - whose names were blacked out - said that the bullet holes were so close together that it appeared the Army Ranger was cut down by an M-16 fired from a mere 10 yards or so away.

Tether your iPhone: EDGE Internet on your laptop Recent developments have allowed iPhone hackers to compile background applications for the iPhone - among the most interesting so far is srelay, a SOCKS proxy server.

srelay running on your iPhone opens up a very exciting possibility - you can use your iPhone's EDGE connection with a laptop or other Wifi-enabled device.

Pang Jia-ming writes in his blog he received death threats through mobile text messages and e-mails. According to blogger Wang Kei qin, Pang is an investigative reporter from China Economic Times (zh). To show support for Pang, Wang reposted Pang’s message.

(Global Voices) Erynnyes from Those were the days commented on the recent cyber bullying case and pointed out that the blogger and editor Zhou Li had also made unfair comments on Mr. Nike, as she drew groundless correlation between the uploading of Japanese AV to the increase of youth sex crime. The blogger pointed out that the cyber bullying on Zhou would only result in psychological stress while her writing would result in criminal charge of Mr. Nike (who had disappeared from the internet) (zh).

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
