Around The Blogosphere 29 March 08

Juan Arellano of Globalizado [es] reports on this morning's earthquakes in Lima and provides links to what bloggers and users of twitters have been saying:

Lima se ha visto sacudida por dos temblores en lo que va del día de hoy, 29 de marzo, el primero fue a la 1.40am (de 4.4 grados) y el segundo a las 7.50am (de 5.4 grados). Los epicentros han sido en el mar, frente a la ciudad de Lima, por la zona sur. Si bien los medios informaron y siguen reportando adecuadamente sobre el hecho, los bloggers no se quedaron atrás y ya sea desde Twitter y luego desde sus propios blogs también se preocuparon por diseminar la información que iba conociéndose y aportar sus propias experiencias al respecto.

A news report [ja] (summary in English) that Nissan has decided to back out of a contract for a TV commercial with actor Richard Gere because he supports the Dalai Lama has triggered hundreds of comments in posting forums [ja] and responses from bloggers.

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.
