Around The Blogosphere 22 June 09

Sometimes "enough is enough" --- she's engaged in digital battles on principle in the past and once again comes out swinging --- like what she has to say or not, Wendy Cheng (XiaXue) has the last word tweet when it comes to IRAN.

XiaXue has recently embraced (as have I) mobile phone technology as a tool for blogging. Steve Rubel has found something called Posterous. He shares.

Steve also posts video detailing how he's getting ready to Tweet for eBay.

Ambiome turns to Dylan...

MissInfo offers video from the Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival.

Radio killed the radio star...

Sokari reports "A survey by the South African Medical Research Council found that one in 4 men have raped a woman and half admitted they had attacked more than one woman."

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:

Your comment will appear after you have made your donation.
