Around The Blogosphere 06 March 08

Sometimes when I can't sleep at night, I watch the first 25 minutes of Jay Leno and / or David Letterman, then flip over to ABC at 12 for Jimmy Kimmel. If you're a JK fan, you'll get a kick out of video Miss Info posted that pits rapper 50 Cent against JK regular Guillermo, in a spirited game of table tennis... James from Japan Probe posted a funny video on a cat challenge in walking through 10 people's shoulders.

Whitney Matheson: Rihanna has banned umbrellas from her shows... Gary Gygax, co-creator of Dungeons & Dragons, has died. Several tributes have been popping up online... Pitchfork is launching an online music TV channel... A Dexter video game is in the works and Tokyo Police Club wants a fan to direct its next video. Here's more info.

Trent Reznor pulls a Radiohead (and then some, offering multiple options for fans to pay a little or a lot for the new Nine Inch Nails album. Oh and you can remix it under the Creative Commons license, too.) (Idolator)

- Facebook faces the music (and launches MySpace-like band pages. Plus do widgets work as brand builders?) (Wired) (BusinessWeek)

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.
