Around The Blogosphere 22 July 09

I'm not really enthusiastic about the iPhone. I like my little Kyocera Wild Card because for the moment, it can do everything I need it to do, for work and play. Virgin Mobile would have to port one of those Ocean models over to their regular service division (vs Helio) or come up with a newer KWC that had video and mp3, and then maybe I'd switch. Of course I'm glad to see and hear I'm not the only one who thinks the iPhone is a piece of you-know-what!

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.
