Around The Blogosphere 19 January 10

A truly inspiring update from The Livesay [Haiti] Weblog: “The reports of violence - we don't get those. Have not seen it. Have not experienced it. Nothing even remotely close. People are helping each other and are warm and kind and humble. I only know one thing - Our hope has not died, it is not buried in that rubble” - observations that are reinforced over at HAITI, Land of Freedom: “NOT ONCE have we witnessed a single act of aggression or violence. Haiti can be proud of its survivors. Their dignity and decency in the face of this tragedy is itself staggering.”

Fashion blogger Cathy Horyn is going to tweet for the New York Times beginning with the fall 2010 fashion season. The news was released via — what else — Twitter.

The Future Is Now… - Starting today I will be blogging over at iHipHop.com in an effort to create a juggernaut of content and information like the internets has never before seen!

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.
