Around The Blogosphere 03 October 08

The Simple Dollar offers a bit of wonderful, simple advice: Personal Finance Management on a Biweekly Pay Schedule.

via cnet: Google updated its blog search tool to track news stories as they pop up on various blogs. Like Google News, the company is taking a product that began as something for search and making it a destination of its own... Competing services like Techmeme, Blogrunner, and Tailrank (currently down) have offered a similar bird's eye view of the news, however, none of those have had the benefit of being tied into a company that maintains such a large search index and proprietary crawling system.

Blogger sky2525 posts photos of her night out [ja] at Cirque du Soleil ZED in Tokyo on Oct. 1st, as well as some pictures of cats doing a few circus tricks of their own.

Mental Slavery has been recently enslaved by an identity crisis: "Who am I? Honestly I’m not sure any more. After studying theories of nationalism and seeing first-hand the artificialness of national identities, I can clearly see how these 'imagined communities' are more at the service of the state than anything else and have little basis in reality."

Mia Nikasimo posts in Black Looks "Africa, my Africa! Where are the people of the LGBTIQ of African origin be that Africans in Africa or those in the Diaspora? Wherever you are, this clarion call is what has led me to create the trans-group known as, “Transafro,” which can be found on Facebook."

via TechCrunch: CBS Labs, which has been testing new HD streaming products, has also rolled out a labs version of a new product called Social Viewing Room. The idea is that you show up to the site, pick a show that’s on right now, and watch it with your friends or whoever is there. You can comment, LOL or take quizzes for points.

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.
