Sunday, June 24, 2012 Brings Social Living To Communities [NOT]

An outfit going by the moniker is saturating the net with an infographic that is being blogged and re-blogged...

Here's the BS the InfoGraphic is spreading, as told by the blogger sheeple: "It’s easy to argue that social networks such as Facebook and Twitter have robbed us of “community.” Gone are the days when people sit on their front porch and wave as the neighbors go by. Instead people answer friend requests and talk to people all over the country.

Attempting to fix the issue of “community” is, a newer social network that allows neighbors to learn each others names, share advice such as the names of good babysitters and landscapers and even protect a community by posting about break-ins and other issues of nuisance."

Of course, that's total CRAP!

A lot of people would rather NOT associate or interact with their physical/geographic neighbors.

The old school "sit on the stoop" or "front porch" community began to disappear during the 1980s when kids would sit for hours and hours in front of ataris and nintendos... those kids are today's young adults, sitting inside right now, reading this.

Of course, the Sheeple, at least some of them, will embrace NextDoor just because someone sent them an infographic about it.

Little wonder some depend on twitter and use it as a life-support device!

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.
