Around The Blogosphere 05 June 09

Understatement of the day: "...after all I am an actress." (Bai-Ling)

Bored? Why don't you draw an Orang Utan? Or maybe you should clean house. OR you can watch Je connais le créateur du zizi as posted by Ambiome.

It's TWITTER TIME!!! New Harvard Business research data seems to prove something many had already figured out: Twitter is a broadcast medium, not a conversation.

Keith in Trinidad says that staying safe on social networking sites really comes down to having “a modicum of common sense”, but links to an article that offers security tips - just in case.

Have you ever taken a look at your blog on a different computer through a different browser and found it wouldn't load correctly? There are many reasons for this. I myself noticed that on my PC I couldn't open my blog via Internet Explorer. Looks like Lady Banana was having the same problema. Could this be the fix?

Finally, here's a handy-dandy map of the Iranian blogosphere!

  1. Le zizi est, avant tout, une chanson de Pierre Perret (1974)

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.

IMPORTANT:
