I was in Hong Kong a few weeks ago and noticed several people wearing unique tee-shirts. Some carried logos for products, others Chinese characters and even one with Arabic writing. Then last week in Saratoga I came upon a gal who had on a sky-blue T with her TWITTER HANDLE on the back, and the twitterbird logo on the front! I didn't have my handphone with me so I couldn't snap a picture, but I did speak with her. She told me she designed the shirt herself about six or seven months ago. Judging from the quality of the shirt, I said to her "it must have cost you a small fortune," to which she replied "nope! I did it all online..." and then she had to run, and of course she couldn't remember the website she went to.

Naturally, as soon as I got to a computer I went online to check it out! How can I make my own T? Me being me, I found "the source" in just a few clicks and clacks: they call it "The world's favorite place to find or make unique T-shirts and gifts.TM " And the funny thing is, I had heard about it before: a long time ago I visted a website where one could order custom t-shirts emblazoned with the website's product logo. It turned out that the order would be processed via Cafe Press.

I visited the website and I'm impressed... they've come a long way since my visit years ago! I'm looking into designing a few custom hoodies and sweatshirts for a local DJ pal of mine. Saki Tumi says she's interested in Cafe Press' Posters, and Saki's sister Livvy is online as I type this, ordering Eclipse clothing! You can find fan-designed products or MAKE YOUR OWN TWILIGHT fashions! They've got a 100% satisfaction guarantee! Your order is safe: they have a very secure website

And (best of all) guess what! Cafe Press has a BLOG!

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.
