Around The Blogosphere 24 August 09

Good Morning! here's your early Monday "catch-up" of what the buzz is all about!

It was a rainy weekend here in New York, and raining too where Bai-Ling was, writing and uploading from her cellphone while on location with a movie film crew...

From the William J Clinton blog: Being All That Bill Can Be

LiveJournal users daria_mas and alter-gregor post photos [RUS] from the opposition rally that took place in Moscow on Russia's Flag Day and ended with riot police detaining some of the activists.

Activist blogger Sokari posts on the death of Sean Rigg.

Global Voices' Hamid Tehrani writes about the jailhouse rape and torture of those who protested the June 12 presidential election results. The post includes youtube video of a former political prisoner who recounts the experience of being imprisoned, tortured and raped in an Iranian prison as a 17-year old girl back in the 1980s.

On the Miss Info blog, a Mikey Fresh post featuring Joe Budden

Here are two posts about the iPhone: (1) and (2)[fr].

Monica Tang does a little blingblogging...

Wendy Cheng (Xiaxue) has NOTHING to blog, and she's one of the verrry few bloggers who can get away with posting something like that! I'm putting together a little article about writer's block, but when I started typing it I got writer's block, so... ;)

Meanwhile, the streaming flow continues on MICROPERSUASION, podcast INCLUDED!

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.
