Around The Blogosphere 26 Jan 2012

Time now for another edition of "Around the Blogosphere." Let's get started.

Serbia: The Media War Against Angelina Jolie

Read this post.

Angelina Jolie was concerned about the reception of her director's debut movie, In the Land of Blood and Honey, in Bosnia and Serbia, and some of her fears turned out to be justified. Sasa Milosevic reports on the virtual battle that Jolie's film has caused.

Another thing to worry about besides facebook forcing that timeline thing down our throats!

“In addition to triggering the greatest civic hell-raising in Internet history…the SOPA/PIPA laws have touched a nerve in Cuba’s digital community”: half-wired explains.

For some reason, James Altucher's blog post reminded me of an answering machine message I once came across years ago when working in a call center.

The man spoke in gentle, friendly tones.

This is Mr. Johnson speaking.
You've reached my machine.
If you're sellin' somethin' - I'm not buyin'...
If you need to borrow somethin' - I ain't lendin'...
If you need my help (he prounounced it "hep") ... I don't have time

May the Lord Bless You and Have a Wonderful Day!

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.
