Around The Blogosphere 21 October 09

My idea of a good picture is one that's in focus and of a famous person. Andy Warhol

It is written that Andy Warhol used Polaroids for his eventual silk-screen portraits. In 1979 Warhol snapped a shot of Farah Fawcett, which is now going on auction at the Children's Museum of the Arts tomorrow. The 3-inch by 4-inch snapshot is not the one in his Polaroid book, and is already valued at more than $8,000.

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.
