Around The Blogosphere 09 Nov 2011

ATB is back, by popular demand!

RIP Heavy D

Starting off with sad news from Miss Info...

They can't stop technology!

Martyn Williams of the North Korea Tech blog writes about the Nautilus Institute's new report on North Korea. According to the report, North Korea's mobile communications industry has grown so rapidly and widely that even the regime can no longer has absolute control over it:

The Nautilus Institute contends in a new report that North Korea is on the cusp of digital transformation thanks to the increasing importance of cell phones and computers in the country.

The report, which is available online (PDF), is a comprehensive and well-researched history and study of the emerging digital communications business in North Korea and was written by Alexandre Y. Mansourov, a senior associate at the organization.

Keyword Mania

If it isn't one thing it's another! Two B-List Bloggers are suddenly posting about keywords, which really aren't going to matter much longer!

"Can You Relate to My Keyword Research Habits?"

"Creating Anchor Text Wisely and Effectively"

Imaginary Foe

In "China: Japan's Imaginary Enemy" John Kennedy writes "Recent Japanese media reports portraying China as the enemy in a Japan-US naval exercise reportedly scheduled for this week have brought even more tension to territorial claims between the two Asian nations." [+LinK]

Nothing to do but watch TeeVee

At least that appears to be the case in Iran: Several bloggers shared their childhood memories where they watched Joe Frazier and Mohammad Ali's match. Mohsen Kordi says [fa] sometimes people were so excited about the matches that they did not go to work and watch TV.

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.
