Bloggers Making Headlines

A blogger is asking for help! Let's give LARRY a hand!

Suburban displeasure ::: The Albany Eye has been dormant for some time, but the blogger behind it is caught in the crosshairs of the public ear in what has become fodder for Capital Region talk radio. (Times Union BLOG)

TIME Magazine ::: Blogger and Former WGY talk show host Mark Williams is on the outs with the "Tea Party Express"

Shocking disclosure ::: A gossip website for high-schoolers is run by a 31-year-old man who also runs an amateur porn sister site. (Gawker)

Watch a promotional documentary about Whive. Whive is an East African social network created by Kenyan blogger John Karanja.

The media in Zambia, a country which for a long time has only known the Zambia Daily Mail, Times of Zambia and the Post for stable, corporate-style newspapers and the Zambia National Broadcasting Corporation and newer private TV and radio stations, is being turned on its head as bloggers as well as citizen broadcasters enter the media space.

Cigarette hater ::: Xiaxue takes a stand against smoking.

  1. The paper says --- Madeo, who appears to be rarely at a loss for words, seemed tongue-tied and circumspect over what he called "a very stressful time."

    THAT'S A FIRST!

  2. Hopefully the Times-Union will reign in that idiot Madeo - notice how he always writes phoney comments on their blogs and signs them "Paul Vandenburgh"? They always get through because Madeo's buddies screen the comments! Look at the comments about the idiot that channel 6 showed tonight on TV! They should arrest him!

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
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.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
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.

IMPORTANT:

Your comment will appear after you have made your donation.
