Around The Blogosphere 26 October 07

Blog of the Day: Ed Dague

Just in time for the weekend, veteran newsMaster Ed Dague has posted to his Times Union blog. The topics are local, and HOT: WRPI, NYSUT, and the state of Talk Radio in the Albany - Schenectady - Troy market! Good job!

Could You Walk Away From This?
Commenters say "Can’t seem to get this image out of my head" and "Combined with the background of the story, this could be one of the most disturbing images that I’ve ever seen."

Geoffrey Philp blogs how he recently had the pleasure of reading Grandpa Sydney's Anancy Stories to the children at the Reading Learning Center at the North Campus of Miami Dade College.

Sonia Faleiro posts congrats to (along with a picture of) blogger Amit Varma,
Winner of the Bastiat Prize 2007.

Izzy is off on some sort of X-rated poetic rant...

It's almost time for another National Novel Writing Month. Are you up for the challenge?

Each year writers sign up to pen a 50,000-word novel during the month of November. The event has grown each year, and this year it looks like several kick-off parties are scheduled around the country. During the month, several celebrity writers will offer pep talks, and participants can track their progress on the website. (I participated back in 2001, and it was a fun experience.)

An alternative to NaNoWriMo is NaNoMangO, which challenges participants to create a 30-page comic book during November. The website may be a little less fancy, but the end products require just as much (if not more) hard work.

Bosnia Vault reviews two books on Auschwitz.

One of my favourite bloggers, Dina Mehta, has signed off Radio. She, like me, is employing the occasional use of the aggregate style or format as evidenced with links for 2007-10-25

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.
