It's Digital Day - June 12

AreYou Ready for Digital TV?

If you've heard that phrase once you've heard it a thousand times this week. We are moving into a new era. Nice thing about my living room set: it receives analog AND digital signals, so I wonder if anything will ever appear again on the analog side? I wonder because, for many years, my ancient Sears Black & White TV on the back porch could pick up cellular phone calls on UHF near Channel 82 (more recently sold sets don't reach that high in the band). Maybe some TV pirates will show up... who knows?

***(If you're not ready for DTV by now, you NEVER will be!)***

Another feature of my digital TV is that it auto-detects any activity on the band: so if a channel "skips in" it registers on the TV. (So I don't have to "scan" for channels!) I think I've posted about DTV before, so you can either use the freefind search in my sidebar or maybe Link Within will sniff out a few relevant posts. By the way, I've gotten great feedback on Link Within, so I hope they stick around!

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.
