Pop Clips » 14 July 12

TRENDING ::: A post I published in 2010 has been getting a lot of hits over the past 12 hours. I just looked over 10 Ways To Become A Famous Blogger! and the article still stands up today, and that's pretty darned good during a time when most "advice" articles for bloggers are usually outdated in less than 6 months!

Another post (published July 2011) that has been suddenly attracting visitors within the last 2 or 3 hours involves a video shot at a Chinese bikini contest, where an actress has her bra/bikini top torn off by angry boyfriend ... (or was it staged to appear that way?) You can view it here.

::: RED ALERT! :::BLOGGERS! Be careful when using images, especially when using VIDEO, even if there is an "embed" code on youtube! DMCA takedown notices are being issued left and right... I have encountered this phenom and don't really understand it. I had a post up about the band One Direction with an official music video that was on youtube and had the embed code option - blogger took down my post after a DMCA was issued. (Even though the blog where I originally saw the video still has it up. i wonder if they got special permission, and if so, why was the "embed" feature not disabled, as it usually is when something on youtube is protected? ) BE CAREFUL! Try to use original drawings and photos whenever possible!

I have also had problems with links from other sources, as documented HERE.

Copyright Alerts System 'six strikes' plan delayed

Daily Dot :: Shortly, a new system will allow your Internet service provider (ISP) to give you gradually sterner warnings and possible punishment if you download copyrighted material. The Copyright Alerts System (CAS)—more commonly known as the “six strikes” policy, after the number of warnings users receive—is coming. Soon. Any minute now. Really. - But it’s not here yet, and it won’t be for at least a few more months.

A report by Kevin Collier,

via BETABEAT ::: What slew Digg, the once-mighty social site at one time thought to be worth $200 million? The Wall Street Journal points toTwitter and Facebook. This Forbes contributor is pretty sure it was Reddit.

Actually, Redditors are pretty sure that Digg killed Digg. READ MORE!

Last but not least, here is an article from April 2012 about JesusPBUH that is just now making the rounds on twiter, especially throughout Africa...

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.
