#HashOut Social Media Talk Show on Yahoo!

This will either be the "new direction" for the interwebs -or- the biggest piece of digital crap since AOL.

I can't make any predictions based on the identities of the distinguished members of the #HashOut panel.

The success or failure of this project (being promoted as 'the first talk show conducted over social media' [it is not]) will depend on the distinguished participants and what those folks have to say about the experience after the fact. I myself have no desire to play any role in this, either as "participant" or "lurker."

If you are interested, you can chase #HashOut down on twitter via @YahooNews

What do YOU think? Smash or Fail? #HashOut or TRASHout?

  1. Hi Dave - yeah, I remember you guys used IRC and did an entire call-in show through the chatroom service. Would you really consider that "social media?"

    I guess IRC actually was the only Social Media back in that time. Wow!
    I wouldn't have any interest at all in this Hashout show. Shriver? Really?

    I have better things to do with my time and I prefer REAL talk shows, even though I do 99% or my radio listening through the computer!

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
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.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
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.
