Blogging Defined

Tags: ,

"Blogging is the act of publishing content online in a space that is yours - usually chronologically ordered. It could be videos, audio, short text messages, photos - all forms of multimedia. It could be in your own space where usually you use a text-driven blogging platform, and to which you can add plugins for a multimedia experience, or it could be within a social network space - like youtube, twitter, etc " - Dina Mehta

Dina also offers 'Us vs Them'? and Google has my past - and my future

Brad Feld on Entertainment and Media Dark Matter of the Blogosphere: I've been fascinated with blog comments since I started blogging. The "blogging is a conversion meme" is a long standing one and the notion of engaging a real community around a blog is fascinating and a lot of fun. However, the blog commenting infrastructure sucks. While data entry is fine, authentication and identity are miserable (anyone can be anyone just by entering a name), conversations are generally impossible to manage, blog spam is pervasive, and tracking conversations is difficult.

Geekchic: FlyUpload é um serviço onde você pode armazenar e compartilhar arquivos (vídeo, foto, mp3, zip, rar, etc) de até 2GB. As transferências de download são ilimitadas além de serem práticas e rápidas.

Global Voices' Ndesanjo Macha writes in Nigeria: Talking About Aggregation, Copyright and Professionalism "Who knew that when the people behind Naijalive.net decided to set up an aggregator (or an "aggregator" of a different kind, as they put it), their efforts would lead to a discussion about aggregation, copyright and professionalism? What is a blog aggregator? Is copying and pasting a form of aggregation? Must owners of aggregators seek permission from bloggers before using their content? What are the technical requirements for a good aggregator?"

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
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.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
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.
