Surf The Net While You Still Can!


10 Signs You May be Relying Too Much on Technology

Lebanese blogger Mir was surprised when she was alerted by gmail of an unusual activity in her account; where an IP mapped to presidency.gov.lb accessed her account at 3am. She shares her story and a screen shot in this post.

So, while we are still able to surf the net freely ::: Music from Saharan cell phones is a compilation of music shared between cell phones owners in Mali. Just to clarify, the music was not collected from “discarded” or “abandoned” cellular phones as has been reported. It’s a sort of funny, the notion that one could find memory cards or cellphones lying around in the trash.

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.
