Social Networking is hot. I've been seeing reports all week that Facebook is overtaking MySpace. You can "SocNet" on a smaller scale like Bobby Revell does. You can join the "SocNet" movement on a grander scale like CBS TV did. I'm a little P.O.'d at MySpace. I kept a page for years, kinda parked, used to keep in touch with a couple old friends and a dear loved one, but without warning, they wiped out my page and now some guy in england has it! Bummer!

Like so many of us, WriteousSister has been wondering if her blogging has any meaning or bears any purpose. To everything, there is a purpose, under Heaven. Read Writing as Suluk Part 2.

I've written a few tips concerning blogging, traffic and stats.

Kroush Ziabari has written a letter to Yahoo:”Yahoo mail has recently removed “Iran” from the list of world countries in its signup page!We, therefore, ask Yahoo! to add Iran to the mentioned list again.”

Be careful where you are when you hit Street Luxe' post La chaussure sexy, nouvel agent provocateur... and Lip Dub 2 in Heaven

Ypulse: Playhut (the latest toy company to create its own virtual world. Plus Imbee is now CARU certified BTW - Zwinktopia just wrote and said they had 10 million active users!? And...psychologists are using virtual worlds to help patients overcome their fears) ( (BBC)

More on Soulja Boy's 2.0 marketing genius (from Idolator. I swear I can watch those imitation videos for hours. Plus video from the Hip Hop Chess tournament on Geek TV)

Making the most out of 'Hannah Montana' (the Disney marketing machine kicks into high gear) (Dallas Morning News)

Planetargonautes: Marcus chez Borat ??? Ké-Sa-Ko Soleil Levant...

  1. Hi Dave. Just wanted to drop in and say thanks for visiting my blog and for leaving such a kind comment on it. :)

    You've got a really great blog here. Looks like I have a lot of reading ahead of me! ;)

    PS: Congrats on your PR 4 ranking as well!


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

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.
