Around The Blogosphere 9 July 09

Dead Rappers Get Better Promotion… - What has Michael Jackson’s death taught you? Let's get schooled. Dallas Penn instructs. And howzabout an Interview with a rap artist turned Muslim? It's on The Hip Hop Cosign.

You've heard the nonsense about Michael Jackson being an "internet era star" - now read what one generation REALLY THINKS about El Wacko... Bahrain fashion blogger Aysha remembers Jacko's style: “From his staple sequin white glove to his sequin socks, and his many sequin military jackets, MJ helped remind us that fashion is not only about following trends but creating them too.”

RIPThe Printed Blog, a hybrid blog/newspaper, has announced that it's ceasing publication after running into funding trouble only six months after being launched.

Holy S*** Batman, now we're mind-mapping? It's all too much... Now for even more: a video interview with Team Posterous.

2012. We were warned.

Consider yourself warned about this: United Airlines has a public relations 2.0 crisis on its hands.

A new Harry Potter clip has been released, but you can only find it on iTunes.

Let's make something good to eat!

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.
