Blog of the Day: EL MUNDO A TRAVES DE MIS OJOS

Dashy hates Mondays!

The YouTube Republican presidential debate is being televised live Wednesday evening at 8 on CNN from Saint Petersburg, Florida, reports Mashable.com. The viewers’ questions will be key, says the Saint Petersburg Times.

David Marx from Neojapanisme posts an interview with Sumie Kawakami, Japanese journalist and the author of the English-language book Goodbye Madame Butterfly: Sex, Marriage and the Modern Japanese Woman, recently published by Chin Music Press. (Sample chapters are available at the book’s website.)

Whitney Matheson: Battlestar Galactica executive producer Ron Moore recently started a blog... Writer/actor Robert Ben Garant (Reno 911!, The State) explains the writers' strike in his latest MySpace entry... Check out this interview with the always-fascinating Crispin Glover.

ABC News and Facebook have joined in a cooperative effort to bring viewers closer to political coverage, says the New York Times.

There is now a Ypulse Facebook profile. Anastasia is hoping for a little interaction... "I plan to use it to promote Ypulse Mashups and other upcoming events. For Ypulse readers active on Facebook looking for a place to discuss youth media or marketing issues, feel free to post comments, discussions, etc. We had a group on MySpace, but nobody really used it -- I'm hoping maybe people will be more likely to start discussions on Facebook."

Word-of-mouth is of major importance in boosting usage of social networking Internet sites, reports Media Post.com. Facebook has disabled pornographic ads on its site, reports the San Jose Mercury News.

Meanwhile, Facebook needs profits to match its promise, says Time magazine.

“Yesterday while at work, I looked on the computer clock, noted that it was past 4:00pm and silently cheered. When did I become a clock watcher?” asks CityGirl.

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.
