InterBYTES 28 September 2011

Amazon is out for iBlood...

Once again, Google has removed the popular "Google Reader" from the gmail toolbar. This underscores my core belief that the "cloud computing" concept is a poor one. Allowing another entity to control the basic functions of your computer (in this case, your email client) is a BAD idea. You are at their mercy. Last time Google tried this, everybody bitched. But now that the era of Google+ is here, will everyone "play dead" or act like SHEEPLE? We shall see!

Generational Media Consumption (Infographic) - It’s hard to believe media has almost completely taken over our entire lives. But it’s true... ask Malini Murmu:

Lazy Optimist informs us that Malini Murmu, a student of the Indian Institute Of Management (IIM) Bangalore, committed suicide because her boyfriend “dumped her via a status update on Facebook”.

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.
