Around The Blogosphere 01 September 09

WAR: SONY to distribute GOOGLE browser; Chrome hitches ride on new Vaio PCs...

How Bai Ling saved 'Lost' - and a bonus clip of Lady B for ya!

The Times Union:::"A picture is worth a thousand questions" Photo/video in story ... Facebook photos allegedly show school board member and his teacher wife drinking with teens!

Micro Persuasion::: The new version of Facebook for the iPhone, however, at least for me is finally a workable solution because it has an integrated dialer. Part of the reason it works is because I limit my Facebook friends only to those whom I have met or corresponded.

The Buttons Blog got a make-over - from A blog about a girl named buttons - "Hi from the brand new Buttons blog! I'm so excited about my new look. Julie from LeeLouBlogs is AMAZINGGGG! Make sure to hop on over to her blog and tell her how much you love the buttons blog..."

Politricks, via Liz Benjamin:::Former Gov. Eliot Spitzer might be weighing a comeback next year, but wouldn't seek his old job... Republican lawmakers are trying to turn DMV fee hikes into Gov. David Paterson's version of Spitzer's driver's-licenses-for-illegal immigrants debacle...Paterson's beard is the victim of "cutbacks," but he still has his moustache.

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.
