Father of the Internet

Our Fathers of the Internet, Digitized Be Thy Names!
Thy kingdom hath come,
Thy will be done,
on earth as it is in cyberspace.
Give us this day our daily e-mail,
and forgive us our facebook,
as we forgive those who comment against us;
and lead us not into myspace,
but deliver us from trolls and stalkers. Amen.


IF YOU READ NO OTHER ARTICLE AS YOU WEBSURF/BLOGHOP TODAY, YOU SHOULD READ THIS ONE!

There is one individual, not among the usual characters cast one time or another as "father of the internet," who probably should be right alongside them. [Vint Cerf, Dr. Philip Emeagwali, and of course the most famous claimant to the title: Al Gore]

You don't know him. You don't know his name. You work with his invention every time you are online.

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.
