Around The Blogosphere 14 July 2010

Eight just isn't enough for Malaysian blogger extraordinaire Kimberly, who is taking her current position on the list of the planet's 12 Hottest Blogging Babes ultra-seriously: Kim is obviously ready to head upward on that prestigious chart, as evidenced in her latest tease post!

Pat Austin posts an interesting picture of America's First Lady at the scene of the BP Oil Spill.

Here'a a link to some new recent photos of President Bill Clinton in Haiti.

Reverse the Wave is a blog (a movement?) by Deena DeNaro, an artist who is “video tagging” public buildings with documentary footage from the Iranian election protests in 2009 to draw attention to Nokia's sale of technology used for surveillance by the Iranian government.

Venezuela: Two people arrested for tweeting about banking rumors

Kyrgyz blogger posts a unique photo report from the historical event: the inauguration of Kyrgyzstan's Roza Otunbaeva, first female president in Central Asia, that took place July 3, 2010.

Intel via the LA Times Blog ::: Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem, both impossibly talented and good-looking and rich and Spanish, were married earlier this month, at a friend's house in the Bahamas, of course. Congrats to the both of them - had no idea they were together, which makes this doubly cool! Audiences will see Oscar winner Bardem (supporting actor, "No Country for Old Men") in August as a love interest to Julia Roberts in Ryan Murphy's "Eat Pray Love." Cruz, recently seen in "Sex and the City 2," won a 2009 best supporting actress Oscar for "Vicky Cristina Barcelona," which also featured Bardem. The couple met in 1997 but didn't date until 2002!

...and my blogging friend Geoffrey Philp has been reading a lot these days... in his latest post Geoffrey shares his views on J.R. Singh's "Days of Laughter."

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.
