Around The Blogosphere 11 November 2010

What People in Rich Countries Rarely Know about Using Internet in Not-Exactly-Rich Countries - These days it’s really hard to find a person who would not agree that internet has truly turned the world into a global and tightly connected place...

Settle Down, Internet, There’s Still Plenty To Watch On Google TV - Oh noes! No more Fox on Google TV! This will surely cause the Pleideans to finally overrun the earth.

Trinidad & Tobago Bloggers discuss the firing of talk show host Fazeer Mohammed - KnowTnT.com: “If the first premise of a national media house is to promote government's agenda then it is their right to hire agents who will work towards this…”; Lisa Allen-Agostini counters: “If it is government policy to usurp the editorial autonomy of CNMG stations…then there should be a clear statement iterating that. If not, CNMG staff should be left to do their jobs without fearing they will be downsized if they step on the wrong toes or imply anything but complete support for the government of the day.”

Reggae icon Buju Banton is finally out on bail; Girl With a Purpose calls this latest development “a small victory” and notes that “in the meantime, two infamous Jamaican Dancehall artistes…Vybz Kartel and…Mavado were listed as persons of interest” by Jamaican police.

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.
