Hey Bloggers! Mark Zuckerberg is a smart guy...

"Hackers believe that something can always be better, and that nothing is ever complete." ~ Mark Zuckerberg

Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook's founder and CEO, recently wrote "Hackers believe that the best idea and implementation should always win —not the person who is best at lobbying for an idea or the person who manages the most people."

I believe BLOGGERS should embrace Mark's mantra. Forget all the damn silly contests that you have to win by blogging, tweeting, facebooking and otherwise sticking your head of other folks' digital asses.If you write just one marvelous post that attracts the attention of hundreds or thousands of other netizens, pat yourself on the back!

Zuckberg's comments were stated in a letter to potential investors.

"The word 'hacker' has an unfairly negative connotation from being portrayed in the media as people who break into computers. In reality, hacking just means building something quickly or testing the boundaries of what can be done. Like most things, it can be used for good or bad, but the vast majority of hackers I've met tend to be idealistic people who want to have a positive impact on the world."

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.
