Around The Blogosphere 05 October 08

There has been persistent resistance to the big Wall Street bailout --- Click on the T-shirt!

You’ve heard the story – living paycheck-to-paycheck is bad thing that only prevents you from getting ahead.... MilkYourMoney blogger Frank does NOT agree! So, if you can't "milk your money" can you at least "milk your iPod?" Yes, yes and YES!

"The song that got stuck in my head this week" honors go to One Self's "Bluebird"...

It will be interesting to see how / if the blogosphere reacts to Michelle Obama's sudden re-emergence on the campaign scene: I notice a few TV appearances scheduled as well as an "email from Michelle" appearing in my inbox:
So what can you do to help Barack win in Ohio? You can help us Get Out The Vote -- and tip the balance in this election -- right from your own living room.

Get a list of potential Ohio supporters and their phone numbers right now. Give them a call and make sure they vote early for Barack.

Republican officials in Ohio didn't want voters to have this opportunity. In fact, they challenged One-Stop Early Vote in court. They tried to prevent new people from entering the political process. But we fought back, and we won.
Like the rest of the world, the China milk scandal has shocked Southeast Asian countries. China is the major trading partner of Southeast Asian nations. Here's how governments, consumers and bloggers from the region reacted to the issue.

More PC woes: the battery on the lead computer in my network is dying. The upside of that: looks like software I've downloaded and installed that's in "trial period" will be use in for more than that: 1 trial day is passing per week... the battery is in critical condition. Someone told me if I'm careful I can replace it while the computer is running. Somebody else told me "don't ever do that." Decisions! How did YOU deal with this problem?

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.
