Around The Blogosphere 07 October 08

L.A. Times Blog: Berkeley Breathed is ending Opus and his comic-strip career.

Gawker posts an article about the ageless / aging Madonna, and perhaps more interestingly (at least to this blogger) if you scroll down to the comments section, you'll notice Gawker will soon activate the option for Facebook users to comment on articles! And despite the scathing comments, you've gotta give Madge at least a little cred for being in great shape at 50 and still cranking out music!

The Gothamist says NY AG Andrew Cuomo plans to sue Arbitron...

Mediabistro posts about Arianna Huffington...

COMMENTING FEES
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.
